Ignite – Computer Science Education Week

This week is Computer Science Education week. To mark the event the IT department have scheduled a number of exciting events and invited guest speakers from local IT companies to speak to our students.

Today the IT department welcomed five female role models from Ignite who spoke to some of our year 9 students about what it is really like to work in the IT industry. Ignite’s aim is to promote careers in IT for girls and to dispel some of the myths about working in the IT industry. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the ladies who gave up time from their busy schedules to speak to our pupils. We would again like to thank Alison Ballard, Dearbhla Bradley and Kathleen O’Byrne from Allstate, Shauna McCafferty (past pupil) from Lenovo and Janine Crosbie from Pramerica. Our pupils had a wonderful time listening to these inspiring ladies.
