Next meeting: Monday 26th Feb 14:00pm.
Weʼre raising £1,500 to help fund a new set of school laptops/tablets.
Can anyone help? Charlotee Russell, one of our members of staff has started a Just Giving Page to raise funds for a set of laptops/tablets in order for children have one each during ICT sessions. ICT has become a huge part of our world and giving the children the opportunity to become part of that is something we feel very passionate about. I know this is a huge ask during these very unprecedented times but this is something we have needed for a long while in order for the children to develop their ICT skills. If you are able to make a donation no matter how big or small we would be truly grateful.
We really appreciate your help!
We are collecting working computers, ipads and tablets here at school so that can use with the children to extend their IT experiences. We are aware that not every family in our school community have access to these at home, and we are aiming to build a bank of resources through fundraising and donations to enable all children to have access where they are struggling.
If you are able to help in anyway please conact the school office. We would love to hear from you.
Matt and Ellie from Lymington Computer Repairs, has kindly offered to help get any donated computers up and working for the children to use, within the first week of our appeal they were able to repurpose 24 laptops for us to utilise for families in need.
Matt can be contacted directly via Lymington Computer Repairs or his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LymingtonComputerRepairs
We have helped out families within our school community and are continuing to do so.
If you attend a different local school - we are now signposting schools and families to the Lymington Community Centre whom with support of Lymington Rotary are assisting lots of families in need in the local area - you can see more details of their appeal here:

As a school community we like to organise our own school fair and get involved in local community events.
We have been invited by Oakhaven Hospice to take part in their Bunny Run! "We are asking families, friends, schools, clubs, businesses and organisations to pop on their bunny ears and run, walk or even hop their chosen 3km route in their “bubble” and at a time convenient for them, from Friday 2nd to Sunday 18th April 2021. Registration for the Bunny Run is just £7.50 per person and all participants will be sent bunny ears, to add a little extra spring into steps! Children will receive some additional Easter treats too.
