Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Richard Bruton, recently formally launched the new Computer Room in St. Mary’s Secondary School, Baldoyle. The Minister praised the quality of the new Computer Room and outlined the value of IT in education and promoted the concept of the flipped classroom. The Minister also viewed the areas of the building due to be refurbished under phase 2 of the school’s redevelopment.
John Moore, Deputy Principal told the County Leader, “Thanks to the support of Minister Bruton, our Computer Room has been completely transformed into a state of the art facility with 34 new powerful computers, including two workgroup digital platforms with integrated overhead projector, printers and screen. Following fundraising from our school walk, the school network was also upgraded over the Easter holidays to ensure that the Computer Room works at the optimum speed and connectivity.
We are delighted and very proud of this new innovative facility in St. Mary’s which will ensure that students will develop key IT skills and advance their independent learning for the digital world.”
“All our students are delighted with this advanced computer room designed as a bright inviting learning environment,” he said.
