Parklands School Award

Following a request from Julia Ward, a parent of a child at Parklands School, for assistance in purchasing specially designed tablets for use in the school Helensburgh Lions decided that rather than help we would buy all six tablets.

The Lions Club were delighted that Mia Ward, a pupil at Parklands School, and her mum Julia, Treasurer of the school Parent Council, came to the golf day to accept a cheque for £3594.  The money will be used to purchase six – Inclusive ClassMate with iSwitch -educational tablets which include special software and in particular facilities for use by the physically disabled.


Simple touch or switch settings are built into all activities enabling access for all early learners and those with physical difficulties. The tablet provides independent power, flexibility for positioning, portability and convenient connectivity for peripherals.

Coupled with the iSwitch, the Inclusive ClassMate Tablet is the perfect solution for switch access in the classroom. The iSwitch comes with 24x functions, including two programmable switch ports.
