Academic Awards Evening.

Congratulations to all of the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate students, who received awards at the Annual Academic Awards Evening on Thursday the 18th of October.

It provided the school with the opportunity to acknowledge the ongoing support of parents and to recognise their hugely important role in the underpinning of their child’s success.

The evening was a wonderful celebration of our students’ attainment in their examinations and their continuing success in their studies, both within the school and in third level education.

Technology Ambassadors.

Students and Teachers from Portmarnock Community School presented their work on The Effectiveness of Digital Technologies in Assessment for Learning as part of the School Self Evaluation process to world renowned leaders in Curriculum Design and Research at the Pupils’ Attitude Towards Technology Conference in Athlone Institute of Technology. 

The pupils were remarkable on the day and acted as great ambassadors for the school. In the pictures they can be seen discussing emerging technological issues with some of the world’s leading curriculum designers and researchers in the field of technology education; Prof. Richard Kimbell, Prof. Marc de Vries, Dr. David Barlex, Dr. Scott Bartholomew and many more, all of whom were very impressed with the students and the school. Thanks to Mr O’Connor and Mr Croghan for their time and inspiration.

Well done Jan.

Jan Zacharias Garcia was one of the finalists in the Dublin/Wicklow region of the Junior Maths Competition run by the Irish Mathematics Teachers’ Association. He represented the school very well with his very happy and supportive family! He received a certificate for reaching the regional final. He is an excellent  young mathematician who enjoys challenging maths problems and is eager and willing to work on tricky questions which he’s never studied before.
