Judges’ comments on our website.

Posted by Grace On May - 2 - 2014

2014 Winner - Best School Website.Here are the judges’ comments on why we won Best School Website:

According to the judges a school website is a window into the life of that school.  This website is not a static brochure but captures vividly the rich variety of activities taking place in the School. The site is based on a blog but utilises a range of tools ranging from RSS to Twitter and Facebook.  

Events from every class are represented in pictures, text and videos.  Individual student’s work is also in evidence throughout – some uploaded by themselves.  Parents are accommodated not only through newsletters and Google calendars, but have an online service for school bus, book rental and other payments.  This site demonstrates how comprehensive a school website can be.  What makes this one extra special is the fact that this school is only a 2-teacher school.

Judges: Pat Seaver, Director of Blackrock Education Centre; Colin Meagle, Trilabyrinth; Declan Tuite, DCU - School of Communications.
