Everyone connected with the school was delighted to hear the news that Gaelscoil Bheanntraí is the firstGaelscoil in the country to be awarded the prestigious Digital School of Distinction Award.
This award is the Department of Education and Skills flagship programme to promote and acknowledge best practice use of ICT to deliver the best educational experience for pupils at primary level. It aims to build on the progress already made by primary schools in ICT integration and to encourage them to strive for further progression and improvement. So far, only ninety primary schools in the country have achieved this award.
That the Gaelscoil has achieved it is a massive validation of the investment in ICT by the BOM over the past few years, in stark contrast to the absence of any DES funding for ICT at the same time. It is also an acknowledgement of the continuous professional development undertaken by the staff to keep abreast of the rapid changes in technology that allows them ‘deliver the best educational experience for pupils at primary level’ on a daily basis.
