Welcome to our website showing you details of our Schools Integration Project (SIP) which we participated in over the last eighteen months. We explored the history of Castlebar and Mayo through the ages using information technology as a tool of learning. In June 2001, we launched our CD "The History of Castlebar", which presents the work produced by all of the participating classes using the multimedia software program, Hyperstudio.
