Letham and District Twinning Association (LDTA) has been instrumental in bringing Letham Primary School and St Buite’s National School, a primary school in Letham’s twin town community, Monasterboice, Eire, together.

As a result of the partnership between LDTA, Angus Council IT Dept and Angus Council education department pupils and staff of both schools can now communicate via the Angus Council ‘Glow Meet’ video conferencing system.

Through the video conferencing system, pupils and staff should be able to build relationships that may result in a cultural exchange between the schools sometime in the future.

In order to enhance this experience, LDTA has supplied Letham Primary School with the additional equipment it needs to get the best out of the Glow Meet system.

The IT trolley, complete with dedicated lap-top computer, high quality speakers and a portable, high quality projector screen, will give Letham PS a very useful, mobile and powerful tool to use throughout the school building.

LDTA would like to acknowledge the financial assistance it received from the Forfar Roof Truss Company and the Strathmore Association towards the provision of the equipment and to Acousta Professional Sound Reinforcement for its technical assistance in the project.
