Skipton chips in for Fairfield screen

DISABLED children in Heckmondwike are to get a new interactive plasma screen thanks to a £3,000 donation.

The Skipton Building Society's charitable foundation gave the cash to Fairfield School on White Lee Road.

It will pay for the school to have a fourth plasma screen to help with the care they give to 118 children with profound learning difficulties. Fairfield, which was nominated for the donation by the Skipton’s Cleckheaton branch, is a specialist communication and interaction school.

They use hitech gadgets as an aid to multisensory learning, something which attracted the building society’s interest.

Cleckheaton branch manager Judith Fleming said: “Interactive plasma screens are a fantastic way for children to learn.

“They are visual, engaging, stimulating and allow a whole class to learn together. This has a big impact on what children learn.”
