National Grid GiftPosted on: June 5th 2020
School children and young adults across the country are set to benefit from a donation of laptops from National Grid and Amery Hill School is delighted have been gifted 40 of these.
The refurbished laptops, which are worth over £8,000, have been received through the Business2Schools charity with the aim of supporting students’ home-learning through the on-going Covid-19 lockdown.
Mr Steve Mann, Headteacher, said: “This incredibly generous donation will make a huge difference to our students’ learning and wellbeing. The closure of our school and social restrictions has made life hard for our young people. Being able to help them overcome some of the barriers to learning will make a significant difference to what our students can achieve in the coming weeks and months. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Emmeline Walker at National Grid and to Lindsey Parslow at Business2Schools for facilitating this donation.”
The laptops from National Grid, and connectivity packages, have already been set up and allocated to students. They will help them to keep in touch with their teachers during the lockdown and will be returned to the school for continued use once it reopens.
