09 Mar Digital Footprint Competition
In line with the wishes of ISPCC the entire month of March was designated as an Anti-Bullying month within Dundalk Grammar School with a particular focus on Internet Safety.
A number of school assemblies were devoted to this topic including a “Safer Internet Day” on Friday 27th February (a copy of the presentation used at assembly on that day can be viewed below).
The Parent Teacher Associations kindly agreed to support a special Digital Footprint Competition for both Junior and Secondary students. The Junior school prizes were presented in assembly on Friday 27th March. The secondary school prizes will be presented during the summer term so there is still time to enter.
Competition entry is very straighforward – see the competition poster for details.
