Conlethians are rather used to ‘All-Ireland’ titles: chess and basketball immediately come to mind… but to be the ‘Best in the British Isles’ is clearly another step up! With a slight sympathetic nod to republicans, we nevertheless will enjoy this new ranking for all it is worth! Apparently, our students have been digitally attending Mangahigh in droves and getting most of their challenging Maths problems correct. So much so, that we are now the top-ranked school in all the British Isles… and apparently that includes both Sark and Inisheer! Some of this success must be credited to our ICT Department: Mr. Travers and Mr. Porzadny are like Sheldon, BB-9E and Santa Claus wrapped up into one great big huggable user interface! The Google Chromebooks are particularly popular, as you can see Ms. Dillon’s class enjoying the portable digital experience, but so is our ICT room, where you see Ms. Leary’s class opting for the wired version of digitally interactive education. And the algorithms say that our Maths teachers, both junior and Senior, also have much to do with this success. Probably. But let us not forget an earlier technological invention: the Paperbook. Its death has been greatly exaggerated, and below you also see Third Forms reading ‘old school’ books such as ‘Tom Sawyer’ and the like. Another valuable wireless experience!
