BeLf is proud to announce one of the first prize giving’s of the BeLF competition.
BeLF attended Hillwest Primary school to present the prize to Ali the winner of the age 7-8 category. We had around 300 entries and were overwhelmed by the high quality of the entries, the panel thoroughly enjoyed reading each entry.
Ali was presented with his prize by Ian McCall, Chief Executive of the Birmingham eLearning Foundation. He was extremely happy to receive his prize in front of his school colleagues. Ali’s mother, who also attended the assembly, said:
“I was really excited; it has been so good for Ali’s confidence and self-esteem. Encouraging a boy to write can be extremely challenging so the netbook will help a lot!”
The school was also very proud of Ali’s achievement. They are actively encouraging the use of ICT in schools and are also taking part in the iPad pilot project. Hannah Cook, ICT Technician said:
“As a school we actively encourage the use of ICT to enhance children’s learning so we were delighted to learn that Ali had won the competition. ICT has a huge part to play in building children’s confidence and breaking down possible barriers to learning so we were thrilled with the news!”
Well done Ali
