Very proud of our students who got short listed for the Eircom Junior Spiders award. Laura has been shortlisted in a number of categories for her fabulous website which aims at teaching primary school children Irish in a fun and interactive way.

In TY Computers this year students created Computer Games and Computer Apps (with Ms. Linehan). It's great that some of their efforts got recognised on the national stage with three projects shortlisted in the National Final ...... Aiga, Susan, Madeline and Katen got shortlisted in the BEST GAME Category, for their game Dottie Duck, a game which helps students with DCD tendencies to improve their hand/eye co-ordination.

Jim is short listed in the BEST APP category for his app which demonstrates various skating tricks (which he videoed himself).

Also in the BEST APP category and in direct competition with Jim is Charley and George who are short listed in the BEST APP category for creating an app aimed at improving German for exams (with the kind support of their German teacher Ms. Henry). The group will travel to Dublin on 25th April for the final where we wish them the VERY BEST of luck!
