Bures Laptop Target – 10 Laptops.    We have raised enough funds for – 10 laptops and 5 iPads!

We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who has donated to the school to raise funds for our laptop appeal.  We have raised a staggering amount – well over our target and will now be able to purchase 10 laptops and 5 iPads to assist children with their home-learning!

In addition to this, we have received a number of second hand laptops, Chrome Books and other devices which has been such a great help.  We have worked hard this week to wipe these and make them secure as quickly as possible to pass onto those and offer immediate accessibility to our home schooling.

We have really have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support we have received from the local community.  We cannot thank you enough for everything especially as we appreciate this is a difficult time for you all .
