On her trip to Ghana, Revd. Emma will be taking with her a suite of 15 computers provided by St. Mary’s and St. Peter’s Primary School and refurbished by members of the church to equip two schools; Sudbury Preparatory Junior Secondary School and Montessori Nursery and Primary School.
In May a team of people of all ages from church refurbished the laptops which involved a thorough clean, securely wiping the hard drives and installing a new operating system so they are ready for use. Finally all the computers were bubble wrapped ready for shipping. It was a long day, beginning at 10am and the last of us left at 7pm, but the enthusiasm and effort of all the volunteers, both adults and children, made it a fantastic experience.
We look forward to seeing more pictures and finding out how they are used when Emma returns from her trip!
