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 their own iPad which can be projected to the IWB. The Junior Infant classes also have a class camera to support teaching Aistear with regards to teaching, reviewing 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 throughout the school year.
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.
