Community Outreach Initiatives

Posted on: 25 May 2021

McGrath Group are proud to have recently donated a number of refurbished PC’s to the Olive AP Academy School in nearby Thurrock, Essex. The Olive Academies provide alternative provisions for a diverse group of young people and children who, for a variety of reasons, may have experienced difficulties in mainstream education. Olive Academies focus on a broad curriculum and encouraging pupils to develop confidence, skills and knowledge.

The refurbished PC’s are now situated across the library and various classes to assist pupils with their studies, and will be used heavily in ICT and Business Studies topics.

We are always keen to find ways in which to help serve and remain engaged with our local community, and this is just one example of how we can help.

Headteacher Collette Hunnisett said:

“On behalf of the students and staff, I would like to thank the McGrath Group for its donation of computer equipment. We are currently in the process of setting up a new library, a classroom where students will read and have literacy lessons. This kind donation will enable us to teach ICT and business lessons in this space as well.”
