Saint Catherine’s has taken part in an initiative to help provide laptops for students at George Pindar School.
The school reached out to local businesses to ask if they could help by donating any laptops that were no longer in use. The aim is to help students who are currently working at home and do not have access to the necessary IT equipment.
Rob Webb (pictured), IT manager at Saint Catherine’s, was able to provide some equipment for the school and said he was delighted to be able to help.
Lesley Welsh, headteacher at George Pindar School, said: “The challenges we have faced as a school since the beginning of lockdown have been unprecedented and we are so grateful that the Scarborough business community has come to our aid as we sought to provide devices to all students who required them.
“With financial pressures weighing ever more heavily on families, and our school resources overwhelmed, we reached out to businesses and their support is so much appreciated. As our students have got to grips with online learning, devices have never been more important and we are delighted that colleagues could reach out at this difficult time.”
Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the kindness of our local community during the pandemic, so it was great to be able to give something back and help in this way. We wish the students every success with their studies.”
