This was a personal project for Andrea as the website is for the school where her daughter had just started in Senior Infants.
The school had an existing site which they were working hard to keep updated, working too hard! With this new version all of that should be much easier to manage for the teachers and the pupils may also have a go at blogging as the year goes on.
The photographs for the website were taken by Andrea, and the crest was refreshed by Regina – the design was maintained while giving a cleaner look and a more usable file format.
The new website also has a newsletter subscription service, which enables the school to keep parents and other interested parties updated via email of any new posts to the School Information or Parents’ Association blogs without any extra effort as it is fully automated.
The pupils at St Finian's are making great use of the site with lots of blogging and updates from school, teachers and pupils. Lots of parents at the school are now receiving updates via the email newsletter.
