Scoilnet Star Site Award for our school website!

Our school website has been awarded a STAR SITE AWARD BY Scoilnet (official education portal of the Department of Education and Science in Ireland). We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious award which recognises those schools around Ireland who embrace the web as a communication tool. The school would like to acknowledge the work of the teachers and pupils, the Student Council and the Parent's Association who have worked on developing our website.

Scoilnet wrote a glowing report which can be viewed or read the report below..

"We would like to congratulate St Brigid’s Girls National School Killester on being awarded Scoilnet’s Star Site. This website is a great point of communication with parents and stakeholders. It also showcases the schools, its teachers and pupils’ achievements. The website also hosts supports for parents and students across all subjects.

There is a wealth of information available here on St Brigid’s Girls National School Killester’s website for parents and guardians from enrolment policy and forms to a calendar with closure dates, parent teacher meetings and sacrament dates. There is also a link to the parent’s association website and book lists. In the future an epayments facility will be available for parents. Another useful tool available her for parents and guardians are details of after-school activities.

Further supports for parents, guardians and pupils are links to useful website for different subject areas. Theses provide links for parents to educational websites that are safe for their children to visit and view. These can be used as part on recreational online use or to support the completion of homework.

This website also showcases the school, teacher’s and pupils’ achievements such as active week along with some fantastic images, the success of a quiz night fundraiser, the green flag, choir and GAA. We also liked the use of images from the school and classrooms rather than stock images across the site. Another nice feature is that the schools twitter feed is embedded on the site. 

It is clear to see that alot of work and time has been spent on making this website a useful and enjoyable tool for parents, teachers and pupils. We commend St Brigid’s Girls National School Killester and its staff for embedding themselves in the local community and a fantastic website.
