Gareth Mottram was delighted to present EdufundUK's first ever award to The Cavendish School, in Hemel Hempstead. Headmaster, David Fisher and Business Manager, Sarah Markley gave Gareth a very warm welcome and an interesting insight into the school. They had wasted no time in allocating the £500 prize draw award – the funds will go directly into enhancing their thriving D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) scheme, including a new monitoring system to further improve its effectiveness.
The Cavendish School was entered into the prize draw for responding to a short, on-line initial interest survey sent to Hertfordshire state-funded secondary schools. After EdufundUK officially launches in Spring 2018, our main activity will be to administer major (£10,000) and minor (up to £1000) awards for school-designed activities/training/equipment in our key areas of STEM, PE and Learning Creatively. Watch your in-boxes for application details!
Thank you to all schools who completed the survey – your responses have helped us fine-tune our literature and update our mailing list to include each school's preferred contact(s).
