Rocket Fund Stories: LCPS digital leaders, tell us how it’s done (Ms Rogers has a chat too!) 👩‍🎓

Name of project: ROLI for Little Chalfont Primary School

Amount raised: £2,025.00

Technology purchased: 2 x Seaboard Block  + 3x Lightpad Block + Website development

We had a lovely time visiting Little Chalfont Primary School last week, and were lucky enough to catch up with the most excitable group of digital leaders we have met so far! Ms Rogers was on hand too, but it was straight over to the digital leaders to tell us how they successfully planned and implemented their project.

Little Chalfont School were keen to raise funds so that they could get their hands on some of the latest ‘Roli’ gear – music technology which would mean they could practice programming and music production skills across the school. They were also raising funds so that they could develop their own part of the school’s website and learn all about digital communications and web development… that’s some seriously motivated digital leaders.

The digital leaders have some pearls of wisdom here about how they went about creating the project, how it felt to run it, and the ups and the downs as the money started rolling in… and stopped… and started again. We recommend showing this short vid to your digital leaders for a healthy bit of competi...err inspiration!

Ms Rogers was there with the digital leaders every step of the way, but they did take the lead on this project. Everybody had a very positive experience and in this short film, Ms Rogers explains all about the process and answers some very important questions. It wasn’t all plain sailing, as Ms Rogers explains: one minute, the donations can be rolling in, the next not… “We had to keep thinking of ways to promote the project and making sure that we met that (minimum) target”. In the end, LCPS digital leaders’ project surpassed their target and was a great success!

We’d definitely do it again, in fact we’re planning on doing another one next year!
