iPad devices in Senior Cycle (4th ,5th & 6th Year)

After extensive consultation with parents, students and teachers in 2019, it became abundantly clear that continuing the use of digital devices into senior cycle was the preferred choice by all. Parents in particular indicated a desire for mobile devices to be used in conjunction with books at senior cycle.

In light of recent circumstances during the Covid-19 pandemic, we as a school found we were very well placed to teach remotely to a very high standard to junior students because they had devices.It was a little more challenging at senior level. We believe reintroducing digital devices into senior cycle, combined with the Book Rental Scheme, will offer our senior students a more rounded education and equip them with the necessary tools in the event of future potential school closures. The cost of the management of these devices will form part of the TY Fee. It is not necessary to buy a new iPad as we believe the devices are still in very good condition.
