Want to see Coláiste Mhuire in Minecraft?!

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Congratulations to the Leaving Cert Applied (LCA) Information & Communications Technology (ICT) students who All recently received Distinctions in their ICT Task.  

This task involved building a scale model of our school in Minecraft!  You can take a brief Virtual Tour by clicking on the short clips below.  

The cross-curricular approach required measuring the school using trundle wheels, counting all the windows and doors and even using a drone to get the aerial photos and to count the skylights!  

Well Done to All the 6L students involved, their teacher and Numeracy co-ordinator Mr John Dunne & to Mr Martin Gleeson (principal & acting LCA co-ordinator) for funding the software and supporting this Numeracy initiative and overall creative process.
