Congratulations to Scoil Mochua of Celbridge, Co. Kildare for winning Scoilnet's Star Site award!
Scoil Mochua's website is up to date, visually pleasing and very easy to navigate. Visitors to the site are greeted with a high definition photo of the grounds of the school.

The About Our School tab contains information on the staff, school policies and history of the school. There is also a very informative section on the school philosophy which has stunning photos of the school and school grounds. There is also a section on the explanation of the school's crest which includes references to Celbridge including a local feature known as The Obelisk or Conolly's Folly.
Scoil Mochua's website also contains a section for parents that has information on enrolment, school policies and child protection. There is also a section for parents on Internet Safety which gives links to useful resources as well as link to a 'Digital Contract' between parents and their children. The For Kids section has information on the Student Council as well as useful links to subjects such as Maths, Geography, Gaeilge and General Links (We're delighted to see Scoilnet at the top of this list!).
