Yes, it may sound too this way, but because The Jack and Jill Foundation have launched this deal nationwide to schools and are ordering suge large quantities of boards, they have been able to secure a good deal. Response has been fantastic.So if a schools can get much needed equipment at the same time as raising vital funds for home nursing care, its a win win situation.

Sounds like a good idea. Almost too good to be true?

This is a great idea our school hopes to get at least one board from them.

The Jack and Jill Foundation:
As schools re-open from the holiday period, the usual expenses of schools life start to crop up. This is a fact of schools life, books to be bought, stationery to be purchased, new tracksuits, shoes, trainers, outings etc...
It is no surprise then that all Parents Associations find the task of generating income a difficult one.
One of the major purchases for schools in recent times is Interactive Whiteboards. It is an cost that cannot be met by school budgets so it falls back on parents to support it, as they know the value this technology has and do not want their school communities lagging behind.
On this note, the involvement of every school in scheme is a must. Simply collect 300 old phones. Donate them to The Jack and Jil Foundation and Promethean will install a new board in your school free of charge. Saving you months of fundraising and thousands of Euro.
Pass this comment on to all involved in school fundraising or call their schools co-ordiantor on 087 2568475 for details on how your school principal/ Parents Association can register.

It´s just that I know that many of the Promethean Boards are supposed to cost about E5,000. When translated, that would mean that 300 old mobile phone would realise E5,000. That´s good going for old phones with some profit still being made for Jack and Jill.
