To update the IT equipment at Ysgol Maesglas

A project by: Julie Kinnair



from 8 donors

This project received pledges on Mon 25 Mar 2019
We are hoping to add new equipment to our IT range, there is just not enough equipment to go around

Key stats

Number of students that will benefit: 247

Age of students: 3-11

Percentage eligible for free school meals: 39%

Our project

We are a primary school based in the heart of Greenfield.

Who is this for?

All the children in the school will benefit from the extra IT equipment. For the foundation phase and KS1, it will provide more equipment for them to use on a more regular basis. For KS2, it will allow more children to use the equipment on a more regular basis, as IT is involved in practically everything these days. 

What do we want?

We hope to purchase some new iPads and laptops for the children. At the moment we don't have enough for a full class to use, the children are very good at sharing but it would really make a huge difference to them and their learning if they didn't need to. They are all full of amazing and wonderful ideas and we don't want anything to hold any single one of them back.

Some of our children struggle to put things down onto paper, but by the use of technology we are able to open up a whole new world for the children.

We last purchased iPads over 10 years ago, the children do try their best to work with what they have got but they're so outdated, now we can't complete or participate in loads of activities.

Where your money goes

We would like to purchase:

4 x iPads @ £319 each (including VAT)

Total = £1,276


If by any amazing chance we were able to raise more than our target we would love to purchase more iPads so there's enough for a whole class to use.


Please donate if you are able to, but if you can't donate then please help us by sharing this project with anyone that may be able to help us either through donating or sharing. Let's get this project out there. Thank you all so much for making a difference!
