Parent Council News
Even the recent snow didn’t deter Bell Baxter Parent Council Chairperson Karen Brown handing in a donation of ten Chromebooks to the school. Wonderful news and all thanks to donations from local organisations - New Park Educational Trust, the University of St Andrews, Cupar Common Good fund and the St Andrews Ball Committee.
The Parent Council are so pleased that this will go towards helping the young people to carry out their schoolwork and ensure equity across as many Bell Baxter families as possible. Depute rector Brian Harris, who received the Chromebook donation, said the school is delighted with the huge amount of support from the Parent Council which will help to make sure that no young person is left behind when it comes to essential IT for home learning in the new remote learning conditions.
I am delighted to say that we have received generous grants from the New Park Educational Trust and St Andrews Ball Committee to help us purchase IT devices and equipment. We have acted quickly and purchased ten USB visualiser cameras which will be given out to staff to help with online teaching. We are also eagerly awaiting the arrival of an order of ten Chromebooks which we have purchased to add to the donation of 44 Chromebooks recently given to the school by the Scottish Government. We are immensely proud to be able to help the school in this way and Mr Harris was very pleased when we handed in the cameras today.
