St Paul’s School partnerships team has supported two local primary schools, St Paul’s CE Primary School and Lowther Primary School by providing 10 new Chromebook computers to each school to help with the digital divide during lockdown.
Claire Fletcher, Headteacher of St Paul’s CE Primary School said:
“We were thrilled to receive such an incredibly generous donation from St Paul’s School to the St Paul’s CE Primary School Digital Divide Appeal.
The gift of 10 brand new Chromebooks for children to use has enabled us to meet and surpass our target of a 1:2 ratio of children to devices.
Due to your help, the school was able to offer a device to every child who needed one during the unexpected COVID closures. Your generosity resulted in an incredible situation when all our children – on and off site – were able to access Google Classroom for remote learning!
These devices are life changing, as they not only helped our children who were forced to study at home during the current pandemic, but will also be used learning in school and will, in the months and years ahead, help us to build a generation of children who are digitally-literate and confident to succeed in education and employment as well as support home learning.”
We cannot thank you enough for your kind donation and for making such a difference to our pupils’ lives.’
Mark Tuffney, Headteacher of Lowther Primary School said:
“We’re absolutely thrilled with our marvellous Chromebooks that were so generously donated to us by St Paul’s. They have been invaluable learning resources for our pupils during the most recent lockdown, ensuring that all pupils could access our excellent online learning offer. We now have the added bonus of also now making very good use of them in school time too. Allowing pupils to have access to the latest technology has been truly fantastic. A huge thank you from everyone here at Lowther. “
