A Larne primary school has enabled its pupils to fully log on to the digital age with the help of funding from a leading charity.

Youngsters at St Mac Nissi’s PS will have the best start in education following the delivery of 30 Apple iPads to be used in teaching a range of subjects including technology, mathematics and English.

Parents and pupils have worked together with the school to raise funds for the state-of-the-art Apple tablet .

With a financial boost from community charity The Big Lottery Fund, they have been able to purchase a full class set.

That means the St Mac Nissi’s pupils will be introduced to a whole new technological world of graphic design and both movie and music production, to name just two of the new subjects now made feasible.

The iPads will also bring excellent numeracy and literacy based resources to the classroom to aid learning within the school.

Teachers also benefit, with an iPad for their own use in class. The super quick technology enables swift access to a variety of new visual aids specially designed for primary school children.

Together with an interactive whiteboard, the new technology means St Mac Nissi’s Primary School pupils will benefit from the best possible learning experience.

“Add to this our brand new laptops and St Mac Nissi’s Primary School is full equipped to lead the way in ICT-based education for many years to come,” said a spokesperson for the school.
