Digital Schools Award Northern Ireland

9th May 2017

On Wednesday 26th April our school received the Digital Schools Award NI.   Dr Victor McNair and Miss Geraldine Timoney from Digital Schools visited us, met the children and observed ICT practices throughout the school.  They noted the school’s willingness to embrace and deploy new technologies in order to offer the best possible experience for their pupils.  They praised the strong culture of ICT within the school and the proactive and dynamic approach of the team responsible for ICT.  They recognised that pupils in all classes were excited and enthused by their work in ICT and that they were keen to show what they could do. They also highlighted the children’s high level of competency and understanding in UICT.

The Digital Schools Award Northern Ireland is a national awards programme that promotes, recognises and encourages best practice use of digital technology in primary schools and we are delighted to receive this award.
