This year, we are DELIGHTED to introduce you to CGI – our new Schools Gala Day sponsors….

CGI is a global company providing IT and business process services. We’re passionate about supporting the communities in which we work, aiming especially to inspire the younger generation. We’re delighted to sponsor the Borders Book Festival 2019 Schools Gala Day.

About CGI & what we do…

CGI is currently working in partnership with Scottish Borders Council to transform all schools across the Borders into world-class digital learning environments, thanks to a £16m investment by SBC.
This is just one of the Council’s plans for placing youngsters at the heart of education, raising levels of attainment and learning outcomes as well as supporting equality and inclusion for all. All schools will also be fitted out with the latest technology, Wi-Fi, as well as training and development for teachers which will give them a vast range of new opportunities and skills.

We call this the Inspire Learning Programme.
