Today was my last day after an incredible year at my new school site. Moving into a new level of digital technology makes me reflect on where I was this time last year. Last night and this afternoon the children leaving school presented their end of year Mass to their parents and rest of the school, part of this was our Powerpoint Presentation. I have done this a couple of times with the children before, but this time the feelings came right to the surface - a real tear jerker. This along with the school play (Joe White) and some wonderful kids brought to life the technology behind it.
The Powerpoint was so popular that we needed 60 copies of it on CD in half a day. The kids responded and set up a production line of disc burning using Dell Laptops churning out discs in packets ready for distribution!
These are nine year old kids!
They harnessed the digital technology!
The song by Avril Lavingne 'When you're gone' was used in the presentation and will never be forgotten ... Rock on Avril!!
