Supporting schools with a supply of cartonboard

26th June 2012

With the tight constraints on school budgets and the juggling act many face when deciding how to allocate funds, we have been only too happy to assist a number of schools by supplying them with cartonboard. Three of them are local to us - Christ Church & St. Peter's Primary School, Shepshed High School and Bushloe High School.

David Rigg from Bushloe High School commented, "Thank you for arranging for us to have some carton board. The material I collected was absolutely perfect for our needs and should last us some time. It will be put to a wide variety of uses including designing and making packaging for items made in Design Technology, building 3D masks in Art, props for Drama and a range of model buildings, hats, signs and banners around the school. Rest assured that our pupils will benefit greatly from this fantastic resource. Brilliant!"

Shepshed High School has written to tell us that the material has been put to good use in students design technology projects. They have used the board to make models for a design that will later be produced in wood or acrylic. Cath Pilkington, a teacher at Princes Risborough School in Buckinghamshire wrote to say.

"Thank you so much for the donation of card to the Design and Technology Department here at Princes Risborough School. We find the card you give us very useful for modeling designs ideas, mounting work, net developments and construction tasks. The school and department budget is always tight and donations like this mean that we can use some of the money saved to provide addition materials for our students. As they say - every little helps."
