Hill View Primary Academy fundraising appeal

Funds desperately needed by Monday, 25th March

MTA has been contacted by the Hill View Primary School Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) with details of a fundraising appeal. Can you help?

“We are raising funds to replace 22 SMART Boards* in our school. SMART Boards are an invaluable asset in any modern day classroom and provide a great educational resource.

“The current boards at Hill View Primary School are very old and difficult for the children to see – the images are very dim even when lights are turned off and blinds are drawn. Replacing these boards would greatly improve the children’s everyday learning. 

Unfortunately, the School doesn’t have the funds to replace all 22 of the the boards – which would cost in the region of £48,000. As a PTFA, we would not normally fund school essentials but given the huge expense involved, we would like to try and help.

“We have set up a Rocket Fund fundraising page, among other activities. We have set a target to try and achieve and so far we have raised £560 of the total £1872. In terms of pledges, Rocket Fund offer an all or nothing deal. We have to reach the full target of £1872 by Monday 25th March or we receive none of the funding. We are desperate to try and reach our target and find more support for our project.”

The link to our Rocket Fund page is below, where you’ll find more details about the project:


*A SMART Board is effectively an interactive whiteboard which allows you to project an image and ‘interact’ with it by writing on it or moving it around. The boards are connected to a computer and work with a projector. The projector displays what is open on the computer and, rather than using a mouse or keyboard (although you can use those also), the SMART Board is a touch screen, which allows you to manipulate anything on the screen using your fingers. It is similar to how you would use a tablet or iPad. Special pens are included in a SMART Board to make writing in different colours quick and easy.
