Our computer suite is incredibly useful throughout the year. All teachers are timetabled for the room for at least two separate periods a week. We firmly believe that all children should be working in the medium of ICT from Primary 1. In the Spring term P4 and 7 pupils take part in the CCEA UICT assessment.
During the Summer of 2015 the computer suite was completely refurbished. As part of the work, the computer suite received new benching, carpeting, painting and shelving. We also invested in a large number of new computers. Presently, the computer room has thirty computers that are all linked into the school's network. This enables every pupil to use an individual computer when they visit the suite with their class. The suite also has a data projector that is used by pupils to display and present their work.
As well as the 30 computers in the library/computer suite, every classroom has access to laptops and iPads. These are currently being used in classes around the school to enhance the learning experience.
The school has also purchased a further seven Interactive Whiteboards that are mounted on the walls in each classroom. The pupils use the Interactive Whiteboards during lessons ranging from Mathematics to Religion and from History to Science.
Pupils are encouraged to enjoy books and develop and lifelong love of reading, this is fostered through our excellent school library. In 2013 a book borrowing scheme was launched to allow children to enjoy school books at home. The scheme is monitored by P7 pupils and has proved very popular.
