St Paulinus Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy, in Guisborough, has invested in a batch of brand-new iPads, thanks to a donation from Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire
The homebuilder, which recently launched its brand-new Galley hill development in the area, has provided a £500 cash boost to purchase two top of the range iPads for educational use throughout the school.
Mr Geaves, head teacher at St Paulinus Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy, comments: “These much-needed devices will enable us to bring more curricular activity to the classroom in a fun and interactive way.
“We received a donation from Taylor Wimpey just a few weeks ago, and we are delighted that the company has continued to support us.”
Taylor Wimpey also donated 100 high-visibility wristbands to the school for Walk to School Month in October.
Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “St Paulinus is a fantastic school, so we were delighted to help out when we heard that they were in need of some assistance.
“We have enjoyed working with the school, and look forward to working with them again in the not-too-distant future.”
Mr Geaves concludes: “We are incredibly grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s continued support. The children love the new iPads and they’re already proving to be extremely beneficial in the teaching process.”
Taylor Wimpey gives wristbands in aid of Walk to School Month
Taylor Wimpey is helping the families of North Yorkshire to shine a light on the importance of leaving the car at home and walking to school this autumn.
To help celebrate Walk to School Month, the leading homebuilder has donated 100 high-visibility wristbands to St Paulinus Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy, in Guisborough, for use during the darker autumn/winter months.
Mr Geaves, head teacher at St Paulinus Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy, explains: “We encourage the children to walk to school to promote a healthier lifestyle and to reduce traffic outside the school.”
Walk to School Month, which takes place every October, is in aid of promoting healthier lifestyles as well as to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads.
Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, which is why we are working in partnership with St Paulinus Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy as part of Walk to School Month.
“We understand that family life can be busy, but walking to school is one of the easiest ways for children to increase their level of physical activity and get fit. We hope our contribution will help inspire families to swap the car for a safe walk to school instead.”
Walk to School Month is an annual nationwide campaign that promotes the benefits of walking to school, which results in healthier young people and less traffic on the roads.
Mr Geaves concludes: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation which will help raise the profile of Walk to School Month amongst pupils and parents alike.”
