SCHOOL pupils are reaching out to businesses in the community to fundraise for their own IT equipment.

Year 2 students at Wooden Hill Primary School in Bracknell are writing letters to organisations asking for raffle prizes, which will help towards the costs of funding new interactive whiteboards and Ipads.

The current IT equipment is outdated and doesn't benefit the pupils learning as much as updated technology could.

So far, the school has managed to secure prizes from car company Ford, Dartington and Patisserie Valerie.

As well as this, businessman Adam Deering reached out to the school after seeing their plea on social media, kindly donating them a new interactive whiteboard.

Emily Smart, Year Two teacher, said: "We have many exciting things happening and we are very successful with our fundraising efforts.

"I am, as a teacher, incredibly proud of the Year Two children and of my amazing school and I would love it if our efforts could be shared to the wider Bracknell community."

According to teachers, the school is trying to fundraise roughly £40,000 worth of IT equipment.

Joanna Lagares, headteacher at Wooden Hill, said: "I am incredibly proud of the dedication and passion that our Year Two team have demonstrated to both the school and our fundraising endeavours.

"I am also bowled over by the support of not just our local community, but the wider community and would like to thank everyone who has supported our fundraising and this magnificent raffle.”
