Theddlethorpe Academy Principal Susan Cook accepts an iPad donation from local resident Gil Williamson to help children during lockdown for remote learning.
Pupils and staff at Theddlethorpe Academy wish to say a big thank you to kind-hearted local resident Gil Williamson who has donated an iPad to the school for use with remote learning during lockdown.
Pensioner Gil, who lives in Saltfleetby, said the iPad belonged to his wife, who sadly died in 2019, and he felt it would be put to good use at the Academy during the Covid-19 crisis.
“I have an iPad for my own use so I did not need it, and it seemed silly to have it lying about when a child could make good use of it,” he said.
The Academy is introducing live remote learning for pupils from home this week, with teachers delivering some lessons by Microsoft Teams. Principal Susan Cook said: “We are very grateful to Mr Williamson for his kind gesture. Live lesson remote learning is being rolled out at the Academy with teachers delivering lessons directly into pupils’ homes.
“We wish to thank our parents and pupils who we know will be giving it 100% at their end to ensure that we can continue to deliver quality education at this difficult time.”
Mrs Valerie Cobbold has also donated a laptop for the pupils. We are so grateful to her. Thank you.
