- IT project – AD stated that the Ipads had been used for the first time today. Year 3 had used the them to research Romans. Regarding the computers from Wessex AD confirmed that one of the screens had be installed in the ITC room. AH requested an invoice for items purchased and will speak to Mrs French regarding this.
AD requested equipment to enable the teachers Ipads to project to the whiteboard. LS currently has a cable, but this would mean teachers would be “tied”. AD suggested Apple TV boxes which would communicate with the whiteboard. They did not need to be the up to date model and would cost in the region of £60-£70 each. All were in agreement to fund the cost, seeing as money had been spent on obtaining the Ipads.
- School Grounds Project – No news at present. AH stated that Trudi Green would like to be involved in the stomping ground and playground and part of the planning process. AD will chase Taskforce.
- M & Co & PTFA fashion show was held on the 17th March at the Shaftesbury store. £362 raised and thanks Nicci Judd for organising this event and M& Co hosting. Unfortunately it was poorly supported by school parents, only 6 people attending. Approximately 45 “out of school” people attending.
- Easter Bingo took place on the 6th April 2017. This was a huge success with £710 made. Sincere thanks to Roxy Gale for organsing and Becky Russell, Natalie Gumbleton and Roxy’s Mother in Law for helping out on the night. It was requested an earlier “eyes down” of 7pm.
