iPads for Innerwick Primary School - 31st March 2016
Community Windpower are delighted to have funded the purchase of 4 brand new iPad Airs for Innerwick Primary School.
The 4 iPads were delivered in March and pupils from the Pupil Council were on hand to receive them and have their photograph taken with Anouska Woods, Community Coordinator at BeGreen Dunbar.
The new equipment has been provided thanks to the Working Partnership that Community Windpower has in place with Innerwick Primary School, ensuring community benefit funding from their Aikengall Community Wind Farm is provided to the local school. The iPads will be a major benefit as they will enable all children to explore new avenues for interactive learning and of course they will be able to access considerably more learning resources.
Head Teacher Janette Gordon said; “We’re delighted to have received this funding from Community Windpower. The iPads will make a real difference in subjects such as PE where pupil reflection will be enhanced. For instance activities can be filmed then watched back and commented on almost instantly. This will help with collective and self-assessment.”
Gillian Cropper, Community Windpower Associate Director, said “Children are so fast on the uptake these days and we’re sure the use of iPads will make a big contribution to the learning experience for enthusiastic young minds.”
The pupils were certainly excited about receiving the iPads and couldn’t wait to start using them in class and filming and assessing their own work.
