|Shoes for all students||Head was keen on helping the children directly which none of the government grants do. So asked for shoes.||£5 per pair||Bought and supplied (Nov 09)|

|New school bag||Black ruck sack with HAT logo.||£564||To be sponsored|
|Alternative to above is to buy just a set amount of items per school.||Attendance by some students is poor and this obviously shows in their results. This rewards those who study hard and those that attend
school regularly. It does not discriminate and simply makes children try harder or attend school more often.

|Books/library||If we purchase books we insist that a library system is applied so children can take books home.||£100 – £400||To be Sponsored|
