Malahide Community School is a very technically enriched learning environment. The challenge was to provide to support and maintain the technology with limited people power. The solution was to harness the technical skills, curiosity and enthusiasm of the students into a tech support team. The team is in its second year of existence and has been a great success for both the school and its members. The iTeam is recruited from student in the TY program and they take responsibility for providing first response tech support and sever as digital media reporters for events in the school.
