Pupils build web directory

A team of budding entrepreneurs from a school in Torbay, Devon, has built a web directory for local businesses. MayneAd, available via a link on the school's website, enables businesses to upload advertising to their own space and update or change their details. The annual fee is #163;150.

#163;8k donation buys netbooks

Wookey Primary School in Somerset has been given a #163;8,500 donation to buy a set of 25 netbooks. Headteacher Clive Rockell highlighted pupils' knowledge of Doctor Who and their connection with HG Wells, who was once a tutor at the school, in a plea to IT services company Misys. The company's charitable arm, the Misys foundation, made the donation last month.
