Metro goes techno with goodies for students

PRINTERS and hand-held video cameras are just some of the equipment that two schools in St Albans have been presented with by the new Tesco Metro store in the city.

MP Anne Main presented representatives from Townsend Church of England school and Aboyne Lodge school with a goody pack, officially marking the hand-over of the equipment which is paid for by the Computer for Schools and Sports for Schools and Clubs vouchers donated by Tesco shoppers to schools or clubs of their choice.

Store manager at St Albans Market Metro Tesco, Dominic Ryan, said: “Tesco for Schools and Clubs is a scheme which my team are proud to be a part of. Thousands of customers have been collecting vouchers to help their local schools and clubs get this new equipment, showing what can happen when a whole community gets involved.”

The scheme allows schools and clubs to purchase equipment ranging from cricket bats to computer software, that they feel they need to support the teaching of the curriculum.

Garden Fields School and Killigrew Primary have also benefited from the store’s scheme.
