The spirit of giving: Diametric sponsors new IT equipment for local school
Diametric brought some early Christmas cheer to Upham Primary School in December by sponsoring new and exciting technology for pupils across the school to use and enjoy.
With the investment, Upham have been able to boost their IT offering and purchase Go-Pro cameras for their Reception class, and mini iPads for all the other year groups. This sponsorship is the first in Diametric’s wider initiative to provide continuing support to their local community. Each December, they are planning to pick a school, group or charitable organisation and provide the necessary sponsorship.
Graham Steele, Managing Director said; “ Giving back to our local community is incredibly important to us – we want to provide the kind of support that helps schools and groups to not only thrive now but also inspire future generations. By having access to this new equipment, I hope that children at Upham can begin to explore technology and innovation, and build an enthusiasm for both that follows them through their education and their future careers.”
Mrs Bird, Year 3 class teacher from Upham Primary School said; “We are incredibly grateful to Diametric for providing this sponsorship. As technology continues to advance, this will prove to be a very valuable IT investment. Across our four classes each new piece of equipment will allow the children to find unique and interactive ways of exploring the world around them. It is fantastic to have a business in the local area that’s not only at the cutting edge, but using their knowledge to support and inspire those around them.”
