New fundraising projects!

The BSA are working towards the following projects this year:

1. To purchase a new minibus (to replace the Iveco in a couple of years time). 

2. To fund the development of "eye gaze" computer communication technology with a set of equipment in each of the three departments. *** Two sets of equipment (costing a total of £8,664) have been ordered so far and are in use - March 2014. A total of £5,800 has now been received from donations towards eye gaze equipment for the nursery - December 2014... it's time to get the quote and get it ordered!

3. To purchase special classroom seating.

4. To fund  new "Soundbeam" equipment - music making equipment which is accessible to every child, however severe their difficulties.

This page will be updated with news of progress on these projects.
