Wilson’s Hospital School applied to be considered for a Schools Excellence Fund – Digital which is a Government scheme to support digital learning. Schools joined together in clusters to apply for these projects. Temple Carrig School, Alexandra College, East Glendalough School, Middleton College, Sandford Park School and Wilson’s formed a cluster and entered a geography project application called The Land We Live In.
Using drone footage and video cameras, all of the schools will be producing videos of core elements of the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate curriculums. This geography project will take place over the next three academic years. We have recently received the drone, a video camera and editing equipment and hope to start by producing footage of the landscape in our local area. Watch this space!
