ELECTRONIC AND OTHER GAMES
In 2010 and again in 2015, the school received grants from the Department of Education & Skills to install Data projectors in each classroom and Interactive White Boards (IWB) in each classroom and Special Education Rooms. Each classroom is also equipped with a visualiser to enlarge and project pages onto the IWB to encourage class discussion. We also have a set of Activote Balls which is used as a fun resource to create interesting multiple choice class quizzes. Each class teacher has an iPad. The Junior Infant classes also have a class camera to support teaching Aistear with regards to teaching review and reflection.
We have a set of class iPads, which are timetabled amongst the classes to support learning. As a safety precaution, the iPads are left in ‘Airplane’ mode so that our young children do not access anything inappropriate on the internet. They are updated once a month.
Children are not permitted to bring electronic equipment/games to school (e.g. mobile phone/iPads/Gameboys etc). Due to their young age children are also not permitted to bring trading cards to school e.g. Match Attax/Pokemon cards etc.
