   Whitechurch NS

Rathfarnham, Co Dublin

This is a beautiful looking website.

The latest news from the school is flagged within the body of the home page where there are also links to individual classes.

   St Mary's NS

Ashbourne, Co Meath

This site is packed full of information with three lines of content navigation on the site header. It all gives a complete picture of life in a busy school environment. The main home page of the site allows the reader to scroll down for the most recently added news items and though the font size is variable it is easy to read.

Raheny, Dublin 5

The first thing that strikes you about this site is the colour and the simple structure of the home page which clearly demarks between News and Events; School Calendar and Important Information.

   Our Lady Queen of Peace

Very professional looking website and certainly very colourful. The blocks of content on the home page are compelling and draw the reader in. Site navigation is across the top and is divided into seven sections presenting really solid school information.

   Francis Street CBS

This is a different looking website to most and has obviously benefited from a professional designer. The main navigation runs across the top of the page with general school information under the tabs for School Features, School Activities and School Policies.

   St John's NS

Sligo Town

This site nicely showcases the work of the pupils at St John's. Use of images throughout the site gives the reader a good feel for all the activities in the school. The navigation is contained at the top of the pages - just six main heads make it easy to access content.

   St Benedict's and St Mary's


This is a simply structured website. Eight elements in the top navigation lead users to content with the home page pulling from the news page. The site makes use of large images and the font is easy to read. The about section gives great information on what the school offers in addition to the normal teaching and learning.

   Castlegar NS

   Sacread Heart Roscrea

Co Tipperary

   Scoil Aodh Rua agus Nuala
