10th February 2020
As you are aware digital devices and specifically iPads have been used in St. Fintina’s, and more recently Coláiste Clavin as the learning resource over the last number of years. Given that there has been a lot of discussion over the past year about the use of these in a school context, the decision has been taken to conduct a full review the use of iPads in our school, and to consider as a whole school community how to move forward in the future with either iPads or Textbooks or a combination of both. With this in mind we are surveying parents, teachers and students and asking them for their views on this.
Parents may participate in the survey by following the link shown on the school website www.colaisteclavin.ie The parents link to the survey will appear on the website from Wednesday 12th February and will remain available to you until Friday 21st February. The survey will close on that date. You are asked to submit one parental survey per household.
Students and teachers will receive a link to their survey via their school email accounts on Thursday 13th February, and we will encourage their participation in that in school, however please do discuss this with them at home also. Their survey’s will also close on the 21st February.
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time to complete.
Your opinion and input is valuable to us, and we thank you in advance for your support and commitment to our school.
