The pupils at Overmonnow Primary Schools Special Needs Resource Base (SNRB) will have a new iPad thanks to a donation from the Monmouth Masonic Lodge.

On Sunday, 3rd September the lodge raised £245 from a fundraising event which they donated to the SNRB.

Worshipful Master Gabriel Hilu said: We held a cream tea and trains afternoon as a fundraiser, one of the members has a large train set which he opened up and we invited people to come along.

Whatever we raised was going to a local charity or group and historically we have chosen Overmonnow.

The iPad will be a helpful addition to the SNRB classroom according to treasurer of meeting the needs, Deb Beech.

The touch screen allows the pupils to learn in ways which they cant with books, pen and paper and even regular computers.

She said: We are very grateful of the continued support of the Masonic Lodge, we will be putting their generous donation towards a new iPad and adding to and updating our IT resources.

They use the iPad for all different kinds of learning, its not just for fun. They use it for literacy, numeracy, music and as a communication aid.
