New ICT Suite 03

Haddenham Community Junior School has acquired a brand new ICT Suite, and staff and pupils are really excited about the new teaching and learning opportunities that it provides.

Until now HCJS pupils have not been able to have a computer to themselves because the space did not allow it. Children can now work at their own computer which means they have more time to complete work.

The school has 33 brand new computers and the latest interactive whiteboard. In addition, there is a new server running a modern Windows operating system, which provides access to a wide range of new software.

The work was mainly carried out during the summer holidays. However, it took almost a year's worth of planning to get everything ready. All of this would not have been possible without the planning and dedication of Katie McGovern and Andrea Fines-Allin.

A lot of people worked on changing the school's old music room into the brand new ICT Suite over the holidays and staff were thrilled that everything was ready to be used at the start of the new school year.

The Head Teacher and staff of HCJS would like to express their sincere thanks to the following people and companies that helped to turn this project into a reality:

  • Turniton for the computers, server and whiteboard
  • JPlan for the furniture, lighting and cabling
  • Folkspur Flooring
  • Saxon Blinds
  • Kevin Thompson
  • Rob Morley (plumber)
  • Steve Hollit (decorator)
  • Steve Loftus (plasterer)
  • Haddenham Beer Festival Trust for its generous donation
  • And of course Haddenham Junior School governors for approving the project!

The official opening of the new ICT Suite took place on Friday afternoon, 20th September, when John Bercow MP and Speaker of the House of Commons visited Haddenham Community School to celebrate the wonderful facility and cut the ribbon.
