****************SUCCESSFUL Awards for All Bid****************

We’re delighted to announce that, following the submission of a bid
to funding body Awards for All, we’ve been awarded a fantastic
£7263 to help start up a new school Technology Club! This new after …
school/ lunch club, which will use Lego Education products and
iPads, will be open to all classes at the school and will be launched
in August 2015. This is where we need you! Are you able to spare 1
hour after school, and do you have an interest in Lego and/or
technology? We’re looking for volunteers to support the running of
the Club, using activity sheets provided by Lego Education. Full
training will be provided in the products involved, and this is likely to
be held in early September. The Technology clubs will support each
stage at St. Johns and will run in 10 week blocks. If you could help
out for 1 hour a week for 10 weeks, we’d love to hear from you –
there will be no preparation required as activity sheets will be
provided. We really do need your support, so please let us know if
you can help by e-mailing parentcouncil@st-johns-hamilton-pri.s-
lanark.sch.uk or via this page.

iPads will be purchased for the school for use in the Clubs, and in the
classrooms too. Parent Council funds of £2500 have been used to
supplement the money received from the bid.

For further details of the Lego Education products, please look at the
information available via the links below.
