#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.
