Tablet computers worth £1,500 for Shepherd Primary School, Rickmansworth
A Rickmansworth primary school has been provided with Apple iPads worth £1,500 to help the children learn literacy and numeracy.
Hertfordshire County Council said the four tablet computers would Shepherd Primary School with "innovative information and communications technology training to its pupils".
The school already has six iPads which it uses for early learning games, and literacy and numeracy activities. The new tablets will be used by children in the nursery all the way up to Year 6.
The money came from the county council's locality budget. A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects.
Locality budgets were launched in July 2009, with funding to be used for worthy social, economic or environmental causes in Hertfordshire.
