Pupils from Dalestorth Primary School were absolutely thrilled with the Dell laptops and tech bundles they received as part of our initiative to provide over 7,000 laptops to schools across the UK to help tackle digital exclusion.
While children returned to the classrooms ahead of the Easter holiday, there is still a need for technology to support education activities inside the classroom, homework tasks, learning during the school holidays and to help schools future proof their home learning capabilities. We formed a partnership with technology provider Dell at the start of the year to invest over £2 million so that every Asda store in the UK could donate at least 10 laptops to a local school. Joseph Lamb, who is teacher at the school, said: “We can’t thank Asda and Dell enough for choosing our school to receive these laptops, they will go a long way in helping to break down digital barriers and help with any education remotely now and in the future. Asda truly is at the heart of our community. A huge thank you from the children and staff at Dalestorth!"
