MCS Computer Room Refurbishment

Millstreet Community School Parents’ Advisory Committee is raising money for the Computer Room Refurbishment.  The current Computer Room is outdated and the PCs need to be replaced. We hope to replace PCs with Chromebooks and create learning pods as per the plan above. Microsoft Office 365 across the school.  Teachers and students are now collaborating in the digital space using cloud technology.  The proposed new layout of the room will provide us with a space where students can collaborate with one another in groups during class periods.  Their work will then be available to them on the cloud for future consultation and for revision purposes. Help us to realise this vision and future proof our school!
Click the Go Find Me link to Donate.  We are hoping to complete this project before next September!Bright Days Ahead!
