Fairfield High School essential technology fundraiser
Addressing the need for equal access to essential online educational resources
Fairfield High School Parents Network have launched this fundraiser to provide the technology necessary for all students at the school to access essential online learning at home.
The Covid crisis has revealed widespread inequality of access to the technology needed for education and this is affecting a surprisingly large number of our school community. Some can only access on-line learning on a Smartphone, or are sharing tech with siblings. Many other pupils are using out-dated hardware, or have no access to any computers or internet at all.
We aim to raise £5,000 in Stage 1 of the appeal, to be given directly to the Fairfield School IT department, so that they can really make a difference to students who are in dire need at the school.
"Our laptop is so old I’ve given up even trying to start it up. My son’s school work has suffered due to lack of access to links for home learning during lock down. We have an old iPad and found a lot of things wouldn’t load. It made me feel like a failure as a parent."
Let's bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots and give all of our children a fair chance to shine.
Many, many thanks for your generosity and support.
