St Ciaran's; preparing pupils for the digital world

St. Ciaran’s College, Ballygawley, like all schools, faces the challenge of preparing our young people for a knowledge intensive economy. We were delighted when Diane Morrow asked us to take part in a holistic Mtech Academy programme which would provide a project-based, technology-centric curriculum that addresses the specific requirements of students and teachers thus preparing them for new opportunities in the digital world.

A group of Year 10 students worked on a problem based learning activity investigating the power of mobile technology in creating smart towns and cities. Throughout the year these students engaged with industry and investigated some of the leading technological advances in 5G, AI, Autonomous Vehicles and Sensor Technology. Pupils worked collectively to create ideas for the future and got the opportunity to pitch their findings on the stage in Barcelona.

Diocesan Ambassadors February Meeting

The Diocese of Derry, very keen that faith and Church are a meaningful part of young people’s lives, held its first meeting of young diocesan ambassadors on Wednesday 13th February in the conference room of Saint Eugene’s Cathedral. To enable the diocese to better hear the voice of the young, 40 young people from Catholic Post Primary Schools, who were commissioned recently at the Annual Catholic Schools Week Mass, met with Bishop Donal McKeown to begin to share the views of young people in their school and parish communities. Meeting once a term, the forum gives young people a valuable opportunity to talk directly with the Bishop and the Diocesan Youth Ministry team and to highlight issues which are important to young people today. The young people present bring a range of different religious experiences to this forum.
