PUPILS in state schools have benefited from a refurbishment at the British School in Torremolinos.
Sunny View School has donated hundreds of desks and chairs, plus smartboards, computer equipment and other items, to local state schools and other groups.The donations came after the private British school renewed much of its classroom furniture and other material over the summer break.Schools receiving furniture and equipment included the CEIP Ciudad Palma deMallorca and IES Los Manantiales schools in Torremolinos.
Málaga’s Ciudad de los Niños school and children’s home and the Antequera-based EDAU educational centre for people with autism also received donations as did the Mezquita Al-Muhsinin Comunidad Islámica de Torremolinos ‘La Paz’.
The bulk of the computer and IT equipment went to the Ciudad Palma de Mallorcaschool, including four interactive smart boards, 15 computer towers, 15 flat-screen monitors, two projectors and other items.
In a letter to Sunny View School, Ciudad Palma de Mallorca headteacher Carlos del Álamo Salgado welcomed the gifts and looked forward to future collaboration.He said: “Thank you for the donation of digital whiteboards, desks, chairs, projectors and computers.
We hope that this sort of collaboration between neighbouring schools will continue for many years to come.”Sunny View School Headteacher Andrew Beavon was pleased to have been able to help the wider community.
He said: “We work with our students throughout the year on a variety of projects that support local, national and global communities.
As we seek to modernise the facilities here at Sunny View, it is wonderful that schools and groups in the province of Málaga have been able to make good use of the equipment we no longer need.”
