Google Classroom


Google Classroom is an electronic learning platform developed for schools that allows teachers to create and distribute homework in a paperless way. Following consultation with our parents and guardians it was introduced into our school during the 2015 – 2016 academic term under the coordination of Ms Amy Looney. During this time it was trialed with First and Second Class pupils, parents/guardians and teachers. It has proved hugely popular with both parents/guardians and pupils and we have received very positive feedback from the school community. As such, Google Classroom is now being rolled out whole school from Junior Infants upwards. Please see two very important guides below that will help inform you about using Google Classroom for the first time and some examples of homework on this electronic platform.
