Teaching Technology to Primary Schools
What are primary schools saying about RíomhaireTech?
“Alan from RíomhaireTech has been a valued member of the staff of St. Colmcille’s N.S., Moone as our Computer Teacher. He has developed a wonderful rapport with the children and staff in the school and the children look forward to their computer lessons each week. As part of his programme, Alan has developed the childrens’ confidence and skills in typing, using Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Publisher and with the introduction of coding. Using Alan’s vast expertise, we have further developed our IT facilities and equipment in the school. I cannot but highly recommend Alan”.
Darragh Flynn, Principal of St. Colmcille’s N.S., Moone, Athy, Co. Kildare
“Having reviewed our school’s provision in IT we decided to approach Alan from RíomhaireTech. Alan worked with us to set up a program of lessons. The children have benefited hugely from Alan’s lessons and are now proficient in a range of IT skills including working with Operating Systems, Touch Typing, Presentations, Coding and they have also completed a range of cross curricular projects. We at the school have found the experience to be hugely worthwhile. Each class works through a program that specifically relates to their individual needs. I would recommend RíomhaireTech without hesitation”.

“We began to use the services of Ríomhairetech in September 2015. So far, the students have developed a range of computer skills such as touch typing, word processing and file management. The students thoroughly enjoy their computer classes which they benefit from immensely. We look forward to continue working with Ríomhairetech in the future and we would highly recommend this service to any primary school”.

"This was an excellent service provided by very competent and professional people. As principal of Cappagh NS, I can safely say that not only did the students greatly benefit from the course provided by RíomhaireTech but the students thoroughly enjoyed their time also.
We had recently purchased new Lynx tablets in the school and we felt as a staff and a school that this training provided our students with an excellent foundation in typng, excel, understanding ICT and presentation building. These are skills that we feel are not just temporary but are lifelong skills that will stay with the students throughout their education".
