1. Ríomhairí sa Scoil

Táimid ag iarraidh ár áiseanna I.T. a fheabhsú. Fuaireamar deontas le déanaí ó I.B.M. chun cabhrú linn mar rinne Jerh Ó Conchubhair go leor oibre deonach sa scoil anuraidh.

Jerh O’Connor, parent, spent time last year working voluntary with classes on Scratch Programming. The company he works for, I.B.M. ,have rewarded him for this voluntary work by giving the school a contribution of 900 euro to help us to update our I.T. resources. We are very grateful to Jerh for his work with the children and his advice and support. We are hoping to improve the resources in our computer room. We would be grateful if any of you have keyboards or mice that you are not using that you would be willing to donate to the school. We would be able to use them in our computer room, with Jerh’s help and some new equipment. Also, if you had any contacts in any company that update their I.T. facilities on a regular basis maybe you would be able to persuade them to donate/sell their second-hand products to us. Míle buíochas.
