Gallen Community School

Gallen Community School FerbaneThis secondary school is situated in the town of Ferbane. In September 2010 they moved into a fabulous new building marking a new chapter in the life of the school. It is a very progressive school with All Ireland success in it’s first two years of the new school in the form of Gaelic Football Senior Community School title 2011 and All Ireland Champions in the Ballad Group Section of the Scór na nÓg 2012.

Keen to compliment their state of the art modern school with a website solution to communicate with parents and students, they approached us here at Optimum and entrusted us with helping them realise their goals and objectives for the project.

Scrolling News Updates

Principal John Irwin and Vice Principal Ursula Finnegan both identified the need to keep parents informed of the busy schedule of events that take place on a weekly basis during and after school hours. This was achieved by using a scrolling news update section to appear sitewide as well as a single page version to see all weekly events at once.

The software used for this site is WordPress which John and Ursula are delighted with as they can easily keep the site updated on their own terms and to  fit in with their own schedule.
