Supporting Education in Africa

This afternoon we were delighted to welcome Dave Ames from Computing At School (CAS) to Lowerplace. I have been working with CAS as a Master Teacher for the last few months and will be working on a number of projects with them in the coming weeks and months.

CAS are supporting Ripple Africa, a charity which amongst other things is aiming to develop education in Malawi. As part of this they have been looking for donations to provide resources to support the teaching and learning of computing. At Lowerplace we are very lucky to have such excellent ICT equipment and we thought it would be great to share some of the resources we no longer use with Ripple Africa.

During our Star of the Week assembly our Digital Leaders presented Dave with six laptops which he will be taking to Malawi on June 10th. Dave and the team will be keeping us updated on how the laptops are helping the children in Africa with their learning.
