I would go for netbooks then in this cost.iBall, micromax offering some nice netbooks within above price range. [with 64bit arch Intel Atom processor]Advantage of netbook would be, install various Linux OS variants every day.Also, it's easy to move those netbooks from 1 place to other without hassle's.Lastly, I am pretty sure iBall & micromax both having servicing center's in Panji city in Goa. [Single stop for any HW issues]Regards,Amey.

But software/OS, we were thinking of having Gnu/Linux.You are just going to donate Raspberry Pi 3 device or along with screens?If you are just going to donate the devices, then buying HDMI screens going to be an expensive deal to the school. :-)Raspberry Pi is at throw away price but other components are expensive for example HDMI monitor.Regards,Amey.Has any one tried Debian on RP3? Is Hamara Gnu/Linux endorsed by Debian?Let me know if anyone has tried out this setup in the school.
