Make sure you give consideration to kids "swinging" off protruding fittings i.e. mechanical fixings, or contained within a cabinet, or adjustable spots from ceiling.

Not to knock the job, but wouldnt the ambient lux level in a school be sufficient?

The old fashioned but still effective answer is a flourescent batten fitting with an angled reflector so as to largely direct the light towards the notice board.
Newer versions that use a T5 lamp are more compact.

Or a resccesed fluorescent fitting with asymetric light distribution.

Or if out of reach, lighting track with halogen type fitting, but equiped with LED retrofit lamps.
