The Digital Schools of Distinction programme is a certification primary schools can get by combining information and communications technology (ICT) in their learning and teaching practices.
The benefits include:
- access to an ICT support network
- a toolkit to develop an ICT plan for every school
- links with other schools in Ireland
- external recognition through a nationally recognised award
Our school is very proud to have received a Digital School of Distinction award. There is a very strong ICT presence in the school with over 30 Ipads and 25 laptops available to students. Each classroom is fitted with a Prowise Interactive whiteboard and the school also installed high speed wifi throughout the school 2021.
The school website/blog is current and displays the work of the pupils.
The school has a twitter account and tweet about all school activities.
The school is involved in projects outside the school such as the Junior Entrepreneur Programme, Green Flag and Active Flag and all of these involve ICT. There are a wide range of projects on display in the school and the pupils are proud of their achievements and are very motivated and supported by ICT in their learning.
