iPads donated to Tibberton school to enable virtual learning

Written on June 18, 2021

Teachers and parents at Tibberton CE Primary School, near Newport, set about raising funds for the new devices earlier this term and thanks to the support of local businesses and others in the community they have reached their goal ahead of schedule.

It means from September each child in class will have access to their own iPad and associated digital resources to support whole-class learning during lessons.

The first batch of iPads has already arrived in school and it is hoped the remaining devices will be in place by the start of the next school year.

The PTA kick-started the project with funding for 15 new ipads. Since then the school has received donations from several Shropshire businesses including Proactive Personnel, Abacus Associates, Reach Telecom, Be Bold Media, Barker Healey Estate Agents, Shropshire Homes, Fisheye Media, Aviramp and Ling Homes. Nova Raiders cycling club has also contributed funds to the project.
