A Midlothian primary school has received a “wish list” of electrical goods up to the value of £1,000 from a recycling scheme.

Moorfoot Primary won the competition run by not-for-profit Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling scheme, “Repic”.

The school requested three iPads to support its curriculum for excellence and help the children with literacy and numeracy.

Competition organiser Repic invited community groups, schools and good causes across the UK to say what new electrical products they needed and answer the question – “What does WEEE stand for?”

Rhona Holland, office support assistant at Moorfoot Primary School, was delighted with the recent delivery of electrical goods which she believes will benefit the pupils.

She, said: “It was wonderful to win the iPads. They will encourage the children to be successful learners, confident individuals and effective contributors whilst boosting their motivation for learning in so many ways.”
