St Mary’s RC Primary School, Farringdon Rod, Cullercoats
St Marys RC Primary is a small yet ‘Outstanding’ Primary school on the North East Coast. Mrs Colette Bland (Head Teacher) inherited the ICT systems and although every classroom had its own interactive system, the main hall where the children’s assembly’s, plays and collective worship takes place was lacking.
Mrs Bland was well aware the hall could do with a multimedia system to enhance children’s performances and teaching presentations alike so that’s where Newlandmedia came in.
The brief was simple but very important, the AV system had to keep the audience (4-11year olds) engaged and included from the front to the very back.
An initial site survey and consultation was carried out, the brief was discussed and a detailed proposal was put forward.
Panasonic 4000ANSI lumens projector was installed, this is a sealed unit to protect the optics and panels from dust (a necessity at such a height) with a wireless connection for iPad link up.
A 3m wall mounted front projection screen so the image with such a powerful projector can be seen well by all.
The audio system that was selected was one pair of Titan Venue speakers, venue amplifier and radio microphones most suitable for the size of hall the sound had to fill.
All audio visual equipment was housed neatly into a cabinet along with an existing laptop, iPod dock and DVD player.
Lastly a simplistic wall plate system has been programmed so whoever is using the equipment can source select, switch on/off and take control of volume all from one panel secured in the hall.

“Newlandmedia were a delight to work with! They listened carefully to our school’s needs and then offered a range of solutions and talked us through each one enabling us to make a well informed decision regarding the system selected. Once the decision was made the installation team visited the school and we were made aware of exactly what would happen on site during the installation. The team worked efficiently and the job was completed without any hiccups. The system has transformed events in our school hall, the children love to be able to see and hear everything so clearly and parents/visitors are always impressed by how things are presented. This level of high quality presentation wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Newlandmedia.”
