Children in 2nd to 6th class are participating in an e-twinning project with Carmelitas SanJuan in Alicante, Spain. Each child created their own hand-made Christmas card which was then sent to Alicante. There was a great buzz in the school when the parcel arrived from Alicante and the children were delighted to receive the card from their individual e-twin.
Here they are with their cards ready to send to Alicante:
Digital Schools Award
We were awarded the 'Digital Schools of Distinction Award' in May 2015. (See www.digitalschools.ie for information on this award). This was a huge honour for the school. We put a lot of work into technology use in the school and were delighted that this work was recognised. The children in all classes use technology on a regular basis. We have a set of tablets that are used in each classroom on a time-tabled basis and we also have laptops that the children in the senior classes use.
There are a great number of apps used to enhance learning in Literacy & Numeracy in particular but also in science, visual arts etc.
