Ceadúnas Ipad(Ipad licensing)

A chara,

Tá eolas anseo ó Wriggle mar gheall ar na roghanna ós do chomhair ó thaobh ceadúnas agus srianta ipad do do mhac/iníon don tréimhse sinsearach scoile i GCM.

Your son/ daughter has now completed their Junior Cycle years with us in GCM. At the end of the month the licensing and management on the ipad that you purchased at the start of 1st year is set to expire. Wriggle have contacted us in recent days to explain the licensing and management arrangements available to you for the Senior Cycle years. The details are outlined clearly below. It is important to note that the school very much encourages all parents to avail of this service from Wriggle and parents can decide on what the best option is for their son/daughter going forward once you have studied the information below. If parents and students opt not to purchase licensing and management from Wriggle there are particular consequences as a result of that and it is important to understand these when making a decision.

Le meas,

Tony Ó Murchú
