Irish Army officials visit

Sgt Clarke & Private Cullen of the Irish Army visited the school on Fri 16th October 2015. They presented the tricolour to the school. Liam, a pupil in sixth class, and Dylan, a pupil in Junior Infants, accepted the flag and a copy of the  Proclamation on behalf of the school community.

 

Following an information talk on the history of the flag and the significance of the colours, the army personnel conducted a question and answer session. The ceremony concluded with a rendition of our National Anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann.

Digital School of Excellence Award.

Our school was recently assessed by an accreditor from Digital Schools of Excellence and we are delighted to have been successful.  Some seven Donegal schools have received this award.  This Digital Schools of Distinction programme is an accreditation, which primary schools can attain by demonstrating ‘excellence in their approach to the integration of ICT in learning and teaching. The benefits of receiving this accreditation include access to an ICT support network, a toolkit to develop an ICT plan for every school, links with other schools in Ireland and external recognition through a nationally recognised award’.  There will be an in-school presentation over the coming weeks.
