Primary School events getting better thanks to ADT grant

Alyth Primary School events will be even more enjoyable in future thanks to a grant from Alyth Development Fund.

ADT has awarded £2,000 from its Community Projects Fund to help Alyth Primary School Parent/School Association buy new sound equipment.  The up-to-date technology will mean clearer announcements and better quality sound at fundraisers, school shows, special assemblies and church services, events show-casing pupils’ work.

Class teacher Chelsea Scott said:  “We are very grateful that we were granted funding from the Alyth Community Fund. We were granted £2000 for use on technology equipment for the school. 

“Our main purchase was a brand new Coomber sound system with microphones. We purchased two hand-held mics, four lapel mics and two headsets to go alongside the Coomber. These will be great at enhancing our school performances such as our yearly Nativity production, and of course the children will benefit from learning to use new technology. 

“The Coomber sound system will also really benefit our community events such as our Christmas and Summer Fayres alongside our school coffee-mornings and duck-race fundraising event. We are really looking forward to being able to use this technology when these events can start to run again. 

“We also purchased headphones and mics to use with the iPads we already had within the school. This will allow us to record stories and information about our learning with ease. 

We are yet to use the equipment to its full potential due to the current pandemic however, we are all really looking forward to being able to use it all soon. “

ADT’s Community Projects Fund is open again for applications for grant money until the end of October; find out more and apply for your grant here. The Fund distributes community benefits payments we receive from Temporis Ltd, operators of the Tullymurdoch Windfarm north of Alyth.
