8 June 2018 Young Enterprise competition

Recognising the ever-increasing need for our pupils to be upskilled and prepared for their futures in the digital world of work in all sectors of employment, Mrs. McConnell entered Clounagh’s Year 10 pupils into a competition. The Digital Event took place late May and was organised by Young Enterprise NI and funded by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council. Pupils were to think creatively and propose a technological solution to an everyday problem. A group of boys worked innovatively and came up with the idea of a "Helping Hand" for house-bound elderly. This idea was applauded by local digital employers and the boys were invited to attend a Google Garage Event. The group met with digital experts from Google, leading technology employers, and the new Lord Mayor of ABC Council to discuss such matters as: the need for Digital Marketing Plans and how to measure their success, the importance of a business’s Digital Voice and Platform Analysis. The winning group were congratulated on the manner in which they presented their idea coherently and maturely.

25 Oct 2017 Clounagh staff member writes programming book

In 2016 the BBC released a miniature computer called the micro:bit. A million of these were distributed free to UK schools in a nationwide initative to rekindle interest in computer programming among the next generation. Clounagh's ICT technician Mr. Sloan decided to write a book for micro:bit users entitled Micro Games, featuring 12 game-making projects. The book is used extensively in the school's computer club (top photo). Unexpectedly, thanks to the ebook format removing the burden of printing and shipping costs, copies have been sold beyond the UK, to countries such as Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, USA, and Australia.
