Parents' Council Floral Demonstration

The Parents' Council have distributed a letter regarding the Christmas Floral Demonstration:

Christmas Floral Demonstration 2015

Letter Regarding new School E-mail System

The following letter from the principal was distributed to students concerning the new Office 365 e-mail and calendar system in 2014/15.

Dear Parents/Guardians,
As part of the development of IT in the school we are introducing a new e-mail system (Microsoft 365) to all students in the school. Each student is provided with a school e -mail address and password attached to this letter. This is the first step in the creation of a VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) on a phased basis.

With the current Microsoft 365 system we are incorporating a School Directory (to look up anyone`s e-mail address) and a School Calendar on the system. This will be the official platform for communicating digitally within the school community. Within this environment all school rules apply. All pupils have agreed to the terms and conditions of the AUP (Acceptable Use Policy), signed at the beginning of the school year, to ensure appropriate usage within the VLE. This policy will soon be available on the Board page of the website.
The system can be used across different devices and is accompanied with a specific app (OWA) available for free on the app store. This opens up many possibilities to improve teaching and learning within the school.

This week, at school assemblies a demonstration will be made to each year-group. Also detailed instructions on logging on to the system are available on the school website.
Currently pupils are not allowed to use personal devices to access the school internet and students are not allowed to connect to the schools wireless network unless expressly permitted by the Principal. Please see the school website for advice on the use of the internet.

I would like to thank the IT committee for their work over the last number of weeks.

There will be a special prize for the class that brings in the most money: A make-up Artist from MAC will come and spend time with the winning class.

The funds we raise this year will go towards a number of projects including the extension of the security system in the school and replacing some of the older'box' desks with new tables.


Surveys are a central part of school life. Periodically we carry out student and parent surveys to evaluate the work and experience of students within the school.

Below is an example used in the school's self evaluation process.

The answers were analysed and fed into a review of the year and the results helped us focus on areas for improvement within the school and the curriculum for 2015.
