To Parents of all Fifth and Sixth Class Pupils 2015-2016
This year, the school has once again decided to engage the services of Whizzkids, a company providing an IT skills programme for Fifth and Sixth Class children. The programme will commence on Friday September 11th. and will run for ten weeks. The classes are of one hour duration and will be held in the Resource Centre beside the school. The classes are based on the NCCA objectives for ICT and are provided by qualified teachers. There is a strong educational emphasis in this programme. I have also requested a module on internet safety and cyber bullying. Whizzkids will provide all laptops etc. Computer literacy and technology skills are vital for students today. The programme has been very successful in this school for the past two years. Further information on http://www.whizzkids.ie/In-school-programmes.aspx
The cost is €40 for ten weeks. This may be paid in full at the outset or in two payments of €20. The money may be paid in September .
I am confident that the programme will be a great success.
