At Kilternan Church of Ireland National School we strive to provide ICT equipment that furthers the teaching and learning of our pupils in this digital age.
ICT is used in all the classrooms throughout the school in an age appropriate way.
As there is not a designated time for the use of ICT in teaching and learning teachers integrate its' use in curricular subjects e.g. SESE.
Much effort has been made over the years to progress the school by the previous ICT co-ordinator Melanie Timmons and the current co-ordinator Tanya Riordan.
Currently in the school:
