Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, has helped an Ormesby primary school bring learning to life.
NGN donated £300 to St Gabriel’s Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School on Allendale Road in Ormesby, Middlesbrough, after carrying out a gas mains replacement project in the local area.
The project was part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure and involved replacing the existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The school have put the donation towards their Rocket Fund in a bid to raise money to update the technology and resources they have, which will in turn enable them to offer pupils experiences that they may not have access to at home.
The school are also aiming to buy virtual reality goggles, iPads, Mini-Bots and Lego coding sets to try and improve the coding skills of some of their pupils.
The gas distributor is a dedicated participant in the Considerate Constructor’s Scheme (CCS*) and continually seek out local community projects to support whilst carrying out work in the local area.
Alex Brightman, Customer Care Officer for Northern Gas Networks, said: “On behalf of Northern Gas Networks, it’s an honour to present St Gabriel’s Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School in Ormesby with this donation towards the school’s Rocket Fund. We hope it empowers the pupils to become intellectually curious and explore innovative ideas that they can carry forward into their future learning.
Mrs Phelps, Head Teacher at St Gabriel’s Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School, said: “Everyone at St Gabriel’s Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School would like to thank Northern Gas Networks for their generous donation of £300. We hope this funding will help improve facilities at the school and reignite a love for learning, which in turn will have a positive impact on the children’s lives.”
