PPDS donates Philips interactive displays for Irish €20k education makeover
The Gaelscoil Mhichíl Uí Choileáin school in Clonkilty, Ireland, will receive a classroom technology overhaul valued at €20,000.

The school was named as SchoolComputers.ie’s ‘Education Mega Draw CSR Programme’, a school which provides specialist support for students with autism.

The school beat out 4,000 other schools in Ireland to win the CSR Programme draw, run by PPDS’ partner, SchoolComputers.ie. As part of the donation, the school will receive a 65-in education-focused Philips interactive classroom display.

In addition, the school will also receive 30 Chromebook computers for all year five students, as well a 32 port charging car, an all-in-one printer for the school’s ASD unit and a desktop scanner donated by other SchoolComputers.ie partners.

Pádraig Ó hEachthairn, Principal, Gaelscoil Mhichíl Uí Choileáin school, commented: “This is unbelievable. To think that our school, out of over 4,000 schools in Ireland, has won this prize, is truly amazing. Just like Clonakilty itself, our school is growing year on year, and this requires us to have more tech resources for our pupils.”
