Sixth Year Dáltaí Attend Higher Options at the RDS

On 13th September our 6ú bhliain daltaí attended Higher Options in the RDS. The Irish Times Higher Options is one of Ireland’s biggest student events with over 170 colleges, universities and institutes of further education represented as well as their new apprenticeship hub. Our daltaí had the opportunity to meet and speak directly with representatives from all the main Irish universities and colleges, as well as many from the UK, Europe and further afield. It was a fantastic start to 6ú bhliain and our career research is now in full swing!

CNI To Host Internet Safety Talk for Parents on Wednesday, September 26th

Coláiste na hInse are very pleased to announce that we are hosting a talk on Cyber Bullying and Internet Safety for parents on Wednesday the 26th of September at 7pm. For full details please see here.

In today’s technology-rich environment most of us feel inadequate when it comes to knowing what our children are really experiencing when they use the internet. This is normal and to be expected. However, as parents we have a fundamental duty of care for our children, and unfortunately that means getting a grasp of the things that our children are experiencing on line.

The talk is being delivered by Jeremy Pagden, the Managing Director of Schools Websites. Jeremy has been travelling all over the country delivering Internet Safety talks to both Parents and students alike. The topics covered during the session are as follows:

  • Overview of the internet
  • Cyber bullying
  • Sexual Predators & Fake Personas
  • Dealing with inappropriate content
  • Reputation damage
  • Types of Internet Theft
  • Safety settings on your home Wifi
  • Browser History
  • Safe use of apps
  • Social Media Issues & Challenges
  • Email Scams
  • Safe Searching on You Tube
  • The Dark Web
  • Useful Resources

CNI Welcomes "Beryl" to the Clann!

Over the summer Inion McKevitt worked with orangutans in Borneo. In May she organised fundraising in the school, and due to the generous support of students, parents and staff, Coláiste na hInse now has a new member of the clann, "Beryl". Thank you to all who supported us, and congratulations to Inion McKevitt on her work. We would like to welcome 'Beryl', our 1ú daltaí and all our Clann back.
