St Mary's School Computer Donation

Last year, B&A Group were proud to support St Mary's school and aid in the contributions to enable them to purchase some additional laptops for the students. Having been in use for a good while now, we are delighted to provide some wonderful feedback from the school as well as some of the children:

At St. Mary’s we only had 17 laptops that had to be shared across the whole school. This made computing lessons a challenge and the children had to use them one between two. It was felt that our provision needed to be greatly improved, so we set about costing up the hardware that we would need. After much discussion and research the school decided to obtain 32 Chromebooks, a rather expensive venture.

We would like to greatly thank the B&A Group for their most generous grant of £3000 towards the £15,000 costs of purchasing a set of 32 Chromebooks for the school. The B&A Group have a long tradition of supporting local charities and as an established business in the South West are very proud to give back to the local community and provide support wherever they can. The school has already seen the benefit of this investment and the children are greatly enjoying using them.

“We are so grateful for businesses like the B&A Group who support their local community. Technology moves so quickly and our equipment becomes redundant; with budgets being already over stretched, schools cannot afford to keep updating hardware. It is hard for schools to maintain the quality of IT needed to prepare our children for their future in this fast-evolving technological world. We are very thankful to the B&A Group for investing in our children's futures.” Sam Gillman, Headteacher. St Mary’s CE VA Primary School, Thornbury

“I think the new Chromebooks are great. I love using them for Times Tables Rock Stars, Nessy and computing lessons.” Ephraim.

“We can have a Chromebook each in class, it means we can do our own thing for some of the computing topics.” Eva.

“It was such a wonderful thing for the B&A Group to do, without them we might not have been able to get the new computers.” George.
