Donation of Unused Devices to Support Education

Dear Parents and Carers

DONATION OF UNUSED DEVICES TO SUPPORT EDUCATION

Covid-19 is undoubtedly one of the greatest global challenges of our time and we must all now adapt and adopt profound changes to working, children and adults alike.

Can you help us provide access to education for our less advantaged students during this uncertain period? 

At The Petersfield School, we are helping children get online during this unprecedented time by asking anyone with old iPads, Chromebooks and laptops at home to donate them to school.

Remote learning is vitally important to enable children to continue with their education, and, as you know, we are working with partner organisations to provide extensive and high quality online resources to support our students.

However, we have some children at TPS and across the Bohunt Education Trust family of schools who are unable to fully access online learning because they do not have access to computers at home.  

The devices you donate will be provided to families with children within our school communities, so that they are able to access our best resources and get immediate support and feedback from our teachers.

We are specifically asking for:

  • iPad 3s or higher
  • Chromebooks
  • Laptops capable of running Windows 7 or higher

    It is important that any donated devices are:
  • Sainsburys, Midhurst Rd, Liphook GU30 7TW - donation ‘bin’ by Customer Services
  • Tesco, The Causeway, Petersfield GU31 4JR - donation ‘bin’ by Customer Services

    We ask that you follow Government advice and observe self-isolation, lockdown and social distancing guidance; please only drop devices as part of an essential shopping visit.  

    We are very grateful to our friends at Tesco and Sainsburys for their support in this campaign. 

    Yours faithfully,
