Hi-tect kit for Aldryngton Primary School
July 25, 2012
ICT lessons just got much more exciting for children at Aldryngton Primary School after they were donated funding for 10 new computers.
The hi-tech kit was given to the school in Silverdale Road, Earley, by Baba Karnail Singh from global charitable organisation Sachkhand Nanak Dham last Tuesday.
The cause was founded in India by Hazur Mahraz Darshan Das. His message was love, peace and unity and do “something good for someone else” through his teaching of humanitarian principles.
Teachers heard about the charity through a parent of a child at the school.
Thanking Mr Singh for the donation, headteacher Elaine Stewart said: “The old system was in desperate need of replacement having become too slow to be of real use to the pupils.
“The new installation is so much quicker and includes additional machines that will allow larger groups to make use of computers as part of their learning.
“Without this support the [replacement] project would have remained on the shelf for some time to come.”
“The children were very excited by the project and watched the installation with great interest and have already been making use of the computers.”
Sachkhand Nanak Dham has made several donations across the country including a minibus at Dormers Wells High School in Middlesex and cardiac equipment for Good Hope Hospital in Birmingham.
Baba Karnail Singh, a representative of the charity who has devoted more than 40 years of his life to supporting the cause, presented the computers to the school.
He said: “I was delighted to donate computers to Aldryngton Primary School.
“To help our future young children is a fantastic opportunity and I hope the children continue to benefit from these computers for a long time to come.”
