St. Canice's BNS, Finglas
Over the past number of years St. Canice's BNS have invested a huge amount of money in ICT. Each classrooom has now got a PC, an interactive whiteboard a wireless mouse and keyboard as well as either a visualiser or a scanner. We have also invested in 2 laptop trolleys which house a total of 44 laptops. We have upgraded all our laptops and PCs to Windows 7. Lots of other equipment has been purchased including digital cameras, a digital video camera, digital microscopes and a new photocopier/printer.
All of this would not have been possible without the kind generosity of the school community including children and parents. A huge thank you must be given to our Parents' Association who were central to raising funds for various ICT projects. Their funding supplemented ICT specific grants from the Department of Education and Skills which has led us to where we are today.
Our next aim is to upgrade our WIFI. We are currently looking at investing in a solution that will cover the entire school as WIFI is currently limited to use in the Senior Corridor.
