Carrick on Shannon Education Centre has a large amount of resources available to loan to schools. These resources include BeeBots, Lego WeDo, Knex Kits, Samba Drums, Izak9 and Dyslexia screening tests. There is a refundable deposit of €20 required per box/set of Izac9, BeeBots or Lego WeDo, as these particular resources are expensive and have parts that may be easily mislaid.
We also have a box of artefacts from The National Museum which can be loaned out to schools. There is a refundable deposit of €120 required for the loan of the Museum box. This can be given in the form of a cheque which will be returned on return of the Box.
ILSA (The Irish Learning Support Association) have a library which is housed in The Centre's library. They have a range of books and tests which schools can borrow.
Our library is currently being updated and houses a wide range of educational and academic material available to teachers.
