Pupils at Mellis CEVC Primary School are experiencing a whole new world of learning following the investment of almost £15,000 into new classroom technologies.
All seven of the school’s classrooms, from Reception up to Year 6, have received new touchscreens, described by the school as “essentially giant wall-mounted iPads”, at the beginning of the summer term, in order to replace the existing interactive whiteboards and offer new educational opportunities.
Paul Ryle, school headteacher, said: “It is absolutely fabulous to be able to roll out these new touchscreens across all classrooms all at the same time.
“The interactive whiteboards were fantastic but our children and teachers alike are very excited to be using the latest technology to assist teaching and learning in the school.
“We are particularly thankful to the Mellis School Parents’ Association who have been instrumental in raising a substantial amount of the money.”
