This year’s fundraising goal: In the school year 2019-2020, the Parents and Friends (P&F) of Heber school aim to raise funds for a computer room. Therefore, we aim to raise £25,000 which is a realistic target after the success of the last years.
A new computer room would be used by all children from reception to year 6 and allow the school to match the computer curriculum to the latest technology, turn our children into competent computer users and get them excited about technology from augmented reality to computer coding.
The school plans to convert the room currently called ‘Bubble’, which is located adjacent to the main hall, into a computer room. This means, we need to level the floor, insulate, sound-proof, paint and provide adequate storage and furniture. Potentially, the P&F may also be able to contribute to the computer hardware rental or purchase. Computer donations from parents to the school are also very welcome.
We firmly believe that enabling the children to have the latest technological equipment will stand them in good stead for the future, so we appreciate all efforts to help us raise money for this amazing cause.
Heber parent volunteers regularly organise events which raise funds by selling tickets, drinks and food. In addition to attending these events, you can support the school through digital fundraising for the P&F. 100% of your digital donations will be used for the computer room.

Does your company operate a match-funding scheme?
Many companies offer employees the chance to boost their fundraising efforts by 'matching' the money they raise. If you wish to support your children’s school, let us know that your employer supports match-funding. We will keep you updated about upcoming fundraising opportunities to choose from.
