PPS is looking for iPods/MP3 players and Digital Cameras
Any old Tech? Any old tech? Any, any, any old te…ch?
Well, we don’t need your old iron 🙂
Can you donate a camera to the school, working and suitable for using with SD Cards? From P1-P7, classes would like more for pupils to use. (Nursery may love too if sturdy build and good for developing fine motor control).
If you have any unused, suitable cameras, please do take to school after checking there is still a need (Just in case we start a deluge with this post as PPS parents and families are always so generous!)
ALSO – as part of being a Dementia Friendly school, we hope to develop the PLAYLIST for LIFE project in and through our school. To do this well, we are also looking for unused and working Ipods / MP3 players which can be donated for use. Launched in 2014 by Sally Magnusson, with her very personal account of the pathways created by dementia.
A moving interview can be found here Playlist for Life Charity and Sally Magnusson.
With the help of volunteers, we plan to develop a playlist for life with pupils and others in the village. A special connection between our lives, and music, is recognised to be very strong. More is shared in this wonderful film (trailer) and through this book. You may also be interested in this video clip with Dr. Maggie Ellis.
So – if you have suitable devices, which you would be happy to donate, please take these along to school, preferably in a small padded envelope.
Making a difference in small ways and many ways…..
