iPad Order 2018/19 for 1st yrs students
We work with a company called Wriggle. Details can be found at www.wriggle.ie. This company supplies, configures and manages the devices within our school to ensure it is a safe, effective and engaging learning environment. Wriggle opens an online store on Monday 28th May, 2018 (Login code will be sent by text) through which you can buy the iPad, services and ebooks your child will require. There will be an option there for you to purchase insurance for the device also. This store will close on Friday 20th July 2018 and your child will receive the ipad with ebooks installed on Friday August 17th, 2018 during school hours.
Note** By purchasing your books from Wriggle, a hard copy of each book will be supplied along with the eBook on the ipad. This decision was taken after consultation with parents. If you wish to purchase eBooks only, this must be done from the individual book company’s’ websites by parents/guardians.
If your child will not be using an iPad, books may be purchased from book shops while some may be purchased second hand.
If your child is intending to use an iPad next year but not purchasing it from Wriggle it is important to contact Wriggle on 01 5009060 during May. The I Tunes, Email account and Profiles necessary for school will need to be set up. ebooks etc can be purchased separately from Wriggle if you wish.
