14/12/2023

Skilly is thrilled to announce its exciting partnership with Presentation Secondary School Waterford, bringing our cutting-edge SPHE/Well-being measurement and tracking solution.

Founded in 1798 by the Presentation sisters, Presentation Secondary School, Waterford, has a stellar reputation as an institution that provides a respectful, positive, and progressive learning environment for all students.

Orla Bolger, Principal of Presentation Waterford, expressed her enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, 

"Skilly has designed a solution benefiting students, teachers, and the school in tracking our students' engagement in developing the skills crucial to their well-being. Through this programme students will actively participate in self-reflective learning practices aligned with the curriculum, providing essential data on their progress and the impact of targeted interventions."

The pilot program, set to commence in January 2024, will focus on SPHE/Well-being initiatives and will be initially deployed with the 1st Year Group.

Commenting on the collaboration, Shane Maguire, CEO of Skilly, highlighted the increasing interest from schools in deploying technology to support the delivery of SPHE/Well-being programs at the Junior Cycle level. He emphasised, 

"Delivering these programs in a digital framework that measures and tracks students' reflections contributes to enhanced engagement, structure, and accountability in this critical learning domain of well-being. We are delighted to partner with Presentation Waterford as they integrate Skilly into the foundations of their SPHE/Well-being programs."

This partnership marks a significant step forward in the digital transformation of well-being education, and we look forward to contributing to the success and growth of Presentation Secondary School, Waterford.
