Holy Trinity Primary School

04/03/2014

 

Community Social Cohesion & making the best use of the school’s budget, were both major priorities for the Headteacher & school bursar. Together, they came to the best possible decision…..donate  to Computers 4 Africa.

1) Citizenship

UK schools working in partnership with Computers 4 Africa have the opportunity to gather evidence of (1) sound environmental decision making  and (2) community & social cohesion. By working with a  charity that has both a national and international presence good citizenship  and a positive portfolio is demonstrated to Ofsted inspectors.

2) The Savings

Schools are responsible for disposing of electrical waste according to WEEE directives. Holy Trinity had a choice of using valuable resources, which could be put to better use elsewhere or donating their equipment to Computers 4 Africa at no cost.

3) Update: 5 Years After Donating

After 5 years of  a good relationship there were two exciting developments. The school sent its Network Manager accompanied  by Computers 4 Africa to Tanzania. He saw first hand the impact computers had on education &  the kit from Holy Trinity still in use after 5 years. Computers 4 Africa also returned to the Holy Trinity. This visit consisted of a launch assembly followed by a two-day community collection appeal where members of the Gravesham community were invited to donate unwanted IT.
