News: Funding Plea from The Gattons

Posted on 23rd May 2017

To Whom it May Concern

 

You may have heard that schools in West Sussex are facing dramatic budget cuts.  As a result of this, our school (The Gattons Infant School in Burgess Hill) are finding it very difficult to find money to provide basic resources for our children.  Every class in our school use an Interactive Whiteboard – these are crucial to the delivery of lessons and as a tool for children to use to further their learning.  However, the 8 that we currently have are old and beginning to break down.  They desperately need replacing.

We are sending out an appeal to our community and beyond to ask if they could help us to fund the cost of replacing the whiteboards by donating as much or as little as they can afford, using our funding page provided on the link below;

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this mail.

Kind Regards

Assistant Head
