Education funding in Greytown

Earlier this year we posted an article (Trust provides huge boost for education in Greytown) on how Greytown Trust Lands Trust awarded $81,600 towards key education projects in Greytown as part of its new Education Funding Strategy.

Here are some photos and videos of how this money is being used so far.

Greytown Kindergarten Benefit

Greytown Kindergarten benefit from a new touch screen television purchased with grant funds from the Greytown Trust Lands 2018/19 education bulk funding round.

“The interactive board provides us opportunities to bring the world to the children.  We can find information to extend children’s interests, use it to extend numeracy, literacy, music, creativity skills as well as a visual resource to extend / introduce new languages to children.  It has been a learning experience for teachers as we discover ways to use it with the children within our programme.”

Greytown Kindergarten kids benefit from new touch screen television supplied with funding from Greytown Trust Lands.

“Children playing a game where they have to match the letters onto the word and then it explains to them what the word is, it also sounds out the letters as they move them across the screen.”
