Local school receives £1000 contribution to boost their fundraising efforts from housing developer Owl Homes.
Pupils at Long Itchington school have received an additional boost to their fundraising efforts for replacement ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and outdoor play equipment thanks to a £1000 contribution from Owl Homes, the housebuilder responsible for ten new homes at the development off Quarry Road in Southam. Long Itchington started fundraising efforts to improve their ICT provisions by replacing seven iPads for the school as a priority, with a view to also create an outside play area for their younger children. The donation from Owl homes will go towards this fundraising effort and ensure the school has enough iPads for one in every two pupils, which will be essential in supporting the delivery of the computing curriculum and accessing technology in other lessons.
Bianca Cullis, Head of sales and Marketing for Owl Homes, says; "We are always keen to play a part in building community links within the areas we build, so we are thrilled to contribute towards the fundraising efforts at Long Itchington School. It is fantastic to know this contribution will benefit the education of pupils who attend the school."
Rebecca Richards, Head of Long Itchington School, says; "We would like to say a huge thank you to Owl homes for supporting our school in this way. The new technology means so much to both children and staff and means that every class will have an exclusive use of an iPad to support children's learning."
