Christmas came early at Timahoe NS this week when Parents Association Chairperson Margaret Buggy arrived to the school to present seven brand new ipads.
This was thanks to the funding from the Laois Local Community Development Committee (LCDC), which is chaired by Cllr Paschal McEvoy, under the Community Enhancement Programme 2018.
The key priority of the scheme was to invest in technology which will be accessed by individuals and committees that are impacted by disadvantage, as there is limited access to high speed internet in the area.
Margaret Buggy said: “Timahoe Parents Association are extremely grateful for the funding received from the LCDC, which allowed the purchase of 7 ipads to add to the 3 previously purchased.
“This funding ensures that along with our ongoing fundraising activities, additional resources as needed by the school can be provided for the benefit of all the children in Timahoe NS.
“Sincere thanks to all involved with the LCDC for helping with the whole process from start to finish.”
All members of staff were delighted with the purchase of the ipads and Christmas well and truly came early to Timahoe NS.
Fair play to all concerned!
