Holy Trinity are delighted to be awarded the Digital Schools Award Northern Ireland.
Digital Schools Awards Northern Ireland is a new national awards programme which aims to promote, recognise and encourage a whole school approach to the use of digital technology in primary schools. This prestigious award is supported by the Department of Education Northern Ireland and industry partners HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Microsoft and Intel. On Monday12th June we had an assessor visit the school to see the work going on using ICT. The visit went extremely well and the children involved were excellent. Our Digital Leaders also displayed superb ICT skills.
Mrs Boyd, Mrs Rooney and Mrs Connolly met with Mrs Timoney the assessor and then took her to visit many of our classes. The children were creating iBooks, programming beebots, using green screen, coding apps, creating videos and participating in a Virtual Learning Environment. They were a credit to the school.
Gary Tierney, Managing Director of HP Northern Ireland said: “At HP we believe that technology has the power to make education a more unique experience for students in a way that is more flexible, collaborative and dynamic. We’re exceptionally happy to support the Digital Schools programme as it represents a best-in-class approach to the application of technology in the classroom.” Martin Murphy, Managing Director of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Northern Ireland added: “Digital technology is a way of life for everybody but when you look at the education system, modernising the curriculum to reflect that is a pretty big job. The Digital School Award is a flagship programme that helps do just that.”
A big thank you to Mrs Rooney and Mrs Connolly for submitting the Award.
