School gets smarter thanks to dealership’s Christmas gift

A PRIMARY school in Hampshire can be even more tech interactive in class – thanks to a £2,000 donation from family-run motor dealership Snows.

The Christmas gift from Snows Toyota Hedge End helped to purchase a smartboard for St John the Baptist Church of England School in Waltham Chase, located between Winchester and Fareham.

Another smartboard is already in place following a similar donation sum last year by Snows Toyota Hedge End.

Snows Group director Alex Domone and Leanne Hobley, Snows Marketing Manager for Toyota, Lexus and Lotus visited the school with a £2,000 cheque towards the new piece of kit.

Headteacher Kay Bowen said: ‘Smartboard technology makes a huge difference to teaching and learning. These ones represent a massive improvement, making it far quicker and easier to display information such as graphs, modelling and video. A huge thanks to Snows and Toyota for making more interactive learning possible.’

Smartboards are used to enhance the teaching and learning experience. The touch-sensitive display connects to a computer and projects what is on the computer screen.

St John the Baptist Church of England School is focused on ensuring a dynamic, hands-on learning experience with the Christian values of friendship, respect and trust at the heart of the school.

Snows operates 50 franchised dealerships across the south coast on behalf of 19 brands and employs more than 950 staff. The group is headquartered in Southampton.
