Killocrim NS launch school's new website
Published 30/10/2013 | 05:36
KILLOCRIM National School might be back the road a bit from town, but that doesn't mean it isn't fully plugged in to heart of the digital 21st Century.
Principal Catherine O'Driscoll, staff, pupils and parents launched the school's new website on Thursday night, marking a technological leap that's set to keep the whole school community connected.
Photographs and articles about school events will be posted and the school will also use it to maintain a regular Twitter feed.
The atmosphere at the launch was helped a great deal too with the hosting of a spooky Halloween party for the children. Thankfully, there were no actual gremlins at the party or in the computer at the point of its launch!
"We had a fantastic night and we're thrilled with the new website, it's a fantastic resource for the whole school," Catherine said. "It was one of our parents, Gerard Chute, who did the work on it and he really researched it well and did it all in a voluntary capacity so we're hugely grateful to him. I'd say the hardest job he had was trying to teach it to me though!"
That said, she's learning fast along with all the staff and pupils as they collectively figure out how to deliver the news from Killocrim school.
