A pair of early Christmas presents was delivered by our Thames Valley region to the pupils of Fairford C of E Primary School – in the form of two iPad Minis.
The contribution has helped the Gloucestershire school move a few steps closer to its goal of accumulating a set of 30 which can be used by a whole class. They add to the eight already bought by the school.
We decided to help as we are currently in the town building Stoneleigh: a high quality collection of 19 four and five-bedroom detached houses. The school expects fresh arrivals in class when the first new families move in.
Headteacher Julie Fellows said: “We’re very grateful for Linden Homes’ contribution. The use of iPad Minis in the classroom brings education to life, helping to ignite children’s curiosity and engage even the most reluctant learners.”
Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing director, Steve Garton, said: “At Linden Homes we always set out to give more to the community than houses alone, so we are delighted to help the teachers and pupils at Fairford C of E Primary School.
“I hope the children learn from the iPad Minis and get a lot of enjoyment too. Who knows, maybe one day they will use their skills to be the architects, site managers and builders of the future building new homes like Stoneleigh.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
