About Us



Digital learning in Malahide Community School supports the effective, responsible and appropriate use of digital technology to enhance the teaching and learning within the school environment. It supports collaboration between staff, students and parents to make the learners’ experience more engaging and to foster deep learning.

We promote whole school interaction with Schoology to encourage digital engagement by students and staff in order to embed greater digital literacy. We value the importance of understanding the impact of technology on society and actively promote responsible, respectful digital citizenship and self management.



The use of ICT is part of everyday life in Malahide Community School. All classrooms are equipped with an iMac computer and a data projector. Students and staff also use iPads to enhance the learning and teaching experience.

There are computer suites for Computer Science at Leaving Certificate and a Design and Communication Graphics lab. Computer science classes, digital citizenship and coding are provided to all students in First Year and TY.

Malahide Community School is currently working towards becoming an Apple Distinguished School for innovation in learning and teaching.



Malahide Community School introduced the use of iPads to students and teachers in 2012. Since then, use of technology has enhanced the learning experience of our students and provides them with the opportunity to develop 21st century learning skills.

We work with our technology partner Wriggle to provide safe and managed use of iPads for students in an age appropriate way. We support both parents and students throughout this journey with training and regular communication.

We are happy to report that our students who have completed their Leaving Certificate since the introduction of the iPad have excelled academically and have reported back that they were very well prepared for the technological demands of 3rd level.
