Silicon Alley have worked closely with schools across the country for over twenty years and so we owe them a great deal for their continued support and custom. We always endeavour to do our very best for our customers whether it be advising them on the best avenues to go down or trying to get them the best prices we can manage but every so often we have the opportunity to do something a bit special. This was the case in November last year when we were approached by Laindon Park Primary School in Essex.
The Laindon Primary PTA had raised £2400 for the school through a “Sponsored Bounce” they had organised and came to us with this budget hoping to get as many tablets as possible. Under normal circumstances this would have got the school maybe four or five iPads or about twenty ASUS tablets. We really wanted to do everything we could do for Laindon to get them as many tablets as possible and as a result, in partnership with ASUS, a leading tablet manufacturer, we managed to negotiate a deal to get the school an incredible thirty-two tablets, enough for their biggest class size!
We had a fantastic time presenting the tablets to the school and were lucky enough not only to meet students and staff but also to get to watch the children perform in a dance show.
Here you can see our very own Steve Lucy and ASUS’s Melanie Abiodun handing over some of the tablets to students at the school.
