Here at MTCSS, we are very pleased to announce we have recently made a donation of a number of tower computers to Somers Park Primary School in Malvern, in Worcestershire, as there was a deficit of equipment in their classrooms after loaning out laptops from around the school to students learning from home during the pandemic.
Due to the pandemic and the need for students of non-essential workers to work from home until very recently, the school had to put out a survey to parents and guardians to ascertain out how many students needed assistance to access online teaching.
Upon the results of the survey, Somers Park distributed 27 laptops to students during January alone. The school repurposed laptops from their technology classrooms, and sent them out to the students. As well as this, Somers Park applied for and received a delivery of laptops for students from the Department for Education (DfE).
After hearing about this, we decided it would be a brilliant idea to donate some Tower PCs to the school, for them to put to use in their classrooms. After the year everyone experienced, it is important to give back to the community and to do our best to help students, especially after the disruption they have all encountered to their education.
“I just wanted to share our gratitude for the kind donation of tower computers made to Somers Park Primary School, by MT Cold Storage Solutions Ltd.
You will recognise the strains which school have been under in order to ensure that all pupils have been able to access remote and online learning during the recent lockdown. In order to achieve this, we have repurposed laptops from around the school to loan to families and your generous computer donation will enable us to ensure we keep functioning technology in the classrooms moving forwards. Please pass on our gratitude to Mr Borg.
Thank you for your support of our school.”
We sincerely wish all the students good luck on their return to school, and we hope our donation has made the transition from online back to in-school learning as smooth as possible!
