Twitter is a simple way to increase communication between the school and pupils and parents. At present you are unable to access Twitter via the education network but we hope to provide access soon. Some schools have already set up Twitter accounts, administering their accounts via Smartphones or from their home computers.
So far the following establishments have set up Twitter accounts.
Clydeview Academy: @clydeview_a
Notre Dame High School: @ndhs1
Gourock Primary School: @gourockpr
The Inverclyde QIO team also has a Twitter account: @InverclydeQIO
