In Scoil Phádraig, we are very committed to the use of Information and Communication Technology in educating our pupils. We believe it is important that the school mirrors the rapid technological changes that are evident in the wider community.
All classrooms are fitted with SMARTboard Interactive White Boards since September 2010, thanks to the generosity of the B.O.M. and the tireless fundraising of the Parents’ Committee. Each classroom is also equipped with laptops, a 3-in-1 printer, a digital camera and various educational software packages. We purchased a suite of 16 ipads along with headphones and various apps in 2019 which are used frequently in all classes.
Computers are used as tools for research, basic skills practice, writing assignments, multimedia presentations, creative expression as well as providing access to a library of curriculum software.
