MWL Systems helps bring technology to life in the classrooms of two Flintshire schools
MWL Systems is celebrating 30 years of continuing business success by planning a range of activities to support the region and its communities.
Two local primary schools, Ysgol y Llan in Whitford and Ysgol Glanrafon in Mold, have been amongst the first to benefit, with a gift of two iPads apiece to help teachers bring the latest technologies to their classrooms.
Patrick Kingsley-Williams, MWL Systems’ Managing Director, said: “As part of planning a number of activities and events to mark our 30th year milestone, we wanted to do things that would make a real difference to the lives of people living in our local communities. And we thought what better way to start than by making the latest technologies more accessible to young children. So we approached two local schools and the idea of giving the iPads was born.”
Receiving the iPads on behalf of Ysgol y Llan, Whitford, Headteacher Kath Royles said: “We are delighted to receive the iPads, and grateful to MWL Systems for supplying them. Interactive technology makes learning so much more engaging and memorable for children and tools such as iPads are an invaluable resource. They complement traditional teaching methods and the children just love using them, capturing their imaginations and injecting an element of fun into educational activities. They also encourage communication and sharing in the classroom, helping both children and teachers at the same time get the most from every lesson.”
Reinforcing the value of the new iPads to the schools, on behalf of Ysgol Glanrafon, Headteacher Llinos Jones, added: “Enabling our teachers and children to have ready access to the latest tools and technologies is of major benefit to us in school. The iPads will allow pupils to have access to a wealth of information, helping build their confidence and develop their skills as early as possible. This will help give them the best start possible, using the sort of equipment they will undoubtedly need to become familiar with, later in their education and indeed into their adult lives.”
Patrick added:- “We plan to support as many good causes as possible this year. Our support and involvement will include raising funds, donating items and our time, providing hands-on practical help. We intend to focus our efforts on projects which will do the most good in the communities of North Wales where all our staff live and work.”
As one of the region’s leading and most trusted IT specialists, MWL Systems has not only weathered the various challenging economic periods since its inception in 1984, but expanded its business and recruited more people from the local area, generating wealth and high tech employment and skills for people in North Wales and the North West regions.
Currently experiencing a period of significant growth and expansion, much of MWL Systems’ new business comes from excellent customer referrals. Over the past two years, the company has invested heavily in resources and staffing levels to meet the increase in demand for IT services from existing and new customers. This sends a powerful message both about the strategic direction in which the company is heading, and the benefits this will bring in terms of the North Wales and surrounding region’s wealth and economic growth.
