Happy March everyone, it is only left but it is here again, and it is miserable. Lockdown has been getting on top of everyone the last few weeks, there is a strong possibility that I am the least impacted person in Ireland when it comes to COVID & even I am feeling it the last few weeks.
So, that is why we have decided to give you some good news, my old primary school, Ballyduff Central National recently approached us to sponsor a tablet for a student and we would have been delighted to do so. I remember being 10 years old and it was an old computer in Mr County’s room where I spent most of my time in Ballyduff CNS, literally fighting with anyone else who dared to even look in its direction.
Thankfully, things have moved on a little bit and classrooms around the world now use tablets for dynamic learning.
Of course, one tablet between 15 students in a class does not go far particularly with the current pandemic.
That is why we decided to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tablet for every student (15) in the class instead. With learning/schooling relocating online, not every student is fully equipped for this move so hopefully, this donation will be able to help those who need it the most.
It is fantastic to see local communities come together during this crisis to provide help for the most vulnerable and I hope it will benefit our young minds for years to come.
It may even lead to one of them growing up to be a full-time nerd like myself.
Times are shite, be sound and help people wherever you can.
