About us

We are integrated primary school set in the heart of Cookstown, Northern Ireland.

What do we want?

We would love to buy 10 Kindles for our students.

Who is this for?

The Kindles can be used for many children within the school but we primarily require it for our low vision students.

Why do we want it?

The Kindle is a popular choice of tablet for primary schools, especially due their safety modes for children.

As well as able to access many learning apps, our low vision pupils can take the strain off their eyes with the lit screen, customised font size and type and paper white background.
