Well done to all our students, teachers and parents who had a great day at the BT young Scientist in the RDS last Thurday. Over 100 students from 2nd, 3rd , 4th , 5th, 6th class attended the fair leaving Clara at the early time of 7am yesterday morning!

A particular word of congratulations to our science team who received an award for their primary science project entitled ” How can we create the Digital School of the Future?” The aim of the project involved investigating how technology can be used to improve all aspects of our school.

Using a number of Apps they explained to the judges how the Ipad tablet device could be used to improve literacy, numeracy and assessment in our school.They also programmed the Raspberry PI mini computer to ensure that when someone rings the doorbell of our school, our principal now receives a notification and picture of the caller by email on her phone. Finally, they also conducted an interesting survey regarding internet safety and how they use technology in their own lives every day.
