Broadland High School in Hoveton has added significant IT resources to their art department with the introduction of nine new computers, donated by local double glazing business Anglian Home Improvements.
The school, recognised as a specialist Maths and ICT institution will use the computers to develop the pupils’ artistic talents, allowing them access to the Internet and other arts based programmes for inspiration and research purposes.
Head teacher at the school, Carol Dallas, said: “As a maths and computing college we always look for ways of increasing our use of ICT across the curriculum. We want and need, to use technology creatively to enhance learning at both Key stages. The generous donation of resources from Anglian Home Improvements has provided an invaluable contribution to creative activities within the Arts.
“The students are always looking for imaginative ways to record their thoughts and represent their ideas whilst also researching other artists and themes. We are keen to improve our use of digital imaging, and where these computers will really make a huge difference is in our photography capabilities, specifically the use of Photoshop.
“What’s more, in our quest to enhance our work with the local community having additional ICT resources will enable us to offer activities such as adult education classes, allowing the school to become an integral part of the community.”
Head of Marketing at Anglian Home Improvements Melanie Russell said: “We are delighted to have been able to support Broadland High School and enhance the school’s facilities for the benefit of all pupils. Anglian’s philosophy is shaped around making and improving communities and we hope that our work with the school, both now and in the future, will enable Broadland and its pupils to thrive.”
