‘Fastest Fingers First’ – Summer Term Launch

Posted on 19 April 2017 in All news

Each school term, we will be running a ‘Fastest Fingers First’ prize draw for schools who accept a quote from us.  It’s an excellent opportunity for us to give back, and to give schools and academies an opportunity to win money to use on something specifically for their school.

An unexpected £250 could go a long way to buying equipment, or books, or enabling an end of term treat!

Terms and Conditions apply.  See below for details.


Spring Term Winners: Ysgol Llansteffan – Llansteffan, Wales 


Ysgol Llansteffan in South Wales were the lucky winners of last term’s prize draw to win £250.  The school has recently purchased OurSchoolsApp for their school and the Head is now enjoying the benefits of being able to notify all parents via push notifications, whilst having one portal of information for parents to quickly access on their mobile phones.



Trefina Jones (Headteacher) said …”The app is great for ease of contact with parents…before we were sending school letters out and they were getting left in the bottom of the bag, or left in school or flying around the local park or whatever…with OurSchoolsApp, parents get them immediately on their phone, and most parents have got smart phones so it’s much easier.  My son’s school had the app already and as a parent I found it easier getting the updates, so I thought it would be great for the parents in the three schools that I am the Head of”…


The school was presented with their cheque and were absolutely delighted.  As a small school with only 33 children, deep in rural Wales the Head acknowledged that this money could go a long way. The School Council are going to suggest some options of what to spend the money on and the rest of the pupils can vote for their favourite!
