Safer Internet Week

It's been a very busy week in school as the children completed activities for Safer Internet Week. The Primary 4 children sent an online safety message through a fax machine and the whole school took part in a colouring and poster competition. During our esafety assembly today the Digital Leaders read the book, "Webster's Email" to highlight the dangers of sharing information online. The Digital Leaders also chose a winner from each class and their posters will be put on display in our computer suite. Well done to Alice P1, Megan P2, Gracie P3, Erin P4, Clodagh P5, Charlie P6 and Caoilinn P7.

Well done to all our boys and girls for their work this week. We hope you stay S.M.A.R.T when using the internet!


Our ICT Mascot has a name!

The Digital Leaders had the very difficult job of choosing the best name for our ICT Mascot.  Everyone from Primary 1 to Primary 7 took part in the competition.  The winning name is "Plugsworth" which came from Alannah P7.  The Digital Leaders thought this was the most original name and we all agree it suits our teddy bear.  Well done to Alannah and all the boys and girls for their effort in this competition. 


The Digital Leaders have been busy!


The Digital Leaders had great fun teaching the Primary 4 children how to make Christmas animation movies using their fantastic Nativity artwork.  They edited their movies and added sound.  Well done everyone, your animations were excellent!


The Digital Leaders need your help!

Our new ICT Mascot needs a name! The digital leaders have asked the boys and girls to come up with a brilliant name for our teddy bear. The winning name will be announced soon!


Digital Leaders trip to the Apple Store, Belfast

Today the Digital Leaders attended a training workshop at the Apple Store in Victoria Square, Belfast. They met with an iGenius called Conor who was full of tips, tricks and praise! The children spent the morning exploring the app ‘Garageband’ and finding out how they could bring this knowledge back into school to share with their peers.
They were challenged to make an original ‘rock’ track during the session which they had to share by the end of their workshop. The children worked independently and asked some super questions about the special features of the app.

All that training made for some very hungry children! After lunch they went on a tour of Victoria Square. They loved using the glass lift to go to the top of the building to take in the views of sunny Belfast. The DL's also worked on a secret project- all will be revealed soon!!!

The children were very enthusiastic about this wonderful experience and are all keen to share their learning across the school. Well done to Blaithin, Aoife, Ella, Cullan, Jay and Conall for representing our school so well today!
