Digital School of the Year Finalist

Clipboard01

Congratulations to Holy Family BNS on being selected as one of five school finalists in the Digital School of the Year competition. This national competition is organised by Digital Media Ireland and Accenture Consultants. This selection as one of five finalist and the only primary school to  be so selected, is in recognition of the high level of digital education being carried out by Holy Family BNS. The school’s excellent and very busy computer room, interactive whiteboards in every classroom, dedicated computers in classrooms for online learning such as Reading Eggs and the excellent downloadable resources at askeabns.wordpress.com , covering General Knowledge, Gaeilge, Word Processing, Irish Clipart, Maths, Literacy and Numeracy resources were singled out for high praise. At a wonderful reception at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, on the 19th of February, the main prize of the selected five finalists went to our neighbours Presentation College in Askea ! This reflects very well on the high level of digital education that takes place in Carlow. Well done everyone.
