We received fantastic news this morning - following our application and assessment last month..... we are delighted to announce that Burncourt NS is now one of the 140 Digital schools of distinction in Ireland!
The Digital Schools of Distinction Award is an award programme launched by Minister Quinn in 2013 which promotes, recognises and encourages best practice in the use of technology in primary schools. This initiative is sponsored by HP Ireland and Microsoft Ireland. As a result of achieving this award, our school will receive a wireless printer and free printing for the year!
This award has been developed to help schools to further integrate technology into the classrooms by providing a pathway and resources for schools who are seeking to integrate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into their teaching and learning.
This award recognises the time effort and money in the development of a digital culture in Burncourt NS and the development of both pupils and teachers digital literacy.
The use of technology in Burncourt NS is evident in each classroom as a tool to enhance the childrens learning and equip them to become lifelong learners.
We will hold an awards ceremony next month where we will unveil our new Digital schools of distinction plaque.
Well done everyone!
