Our Lady of Victory Catholic School in Tyrone was awarded a $7,500 Catholic Community Grant in the Spring 2019 grant cycle to upgrade their computer lab and to purchase 20 new headphones and 8 new Dell OptiPlex All-in-One computers to replace the oldest non-functioning computers.  The impact of this grant enables the school to effectively meet all of their individual learners’ needs.  Students of all learning styles will now be engaged with responsive computers to master core course content.

“Since access to computers is essential for lifelong learning, Our Lady of Victory is so appreciative of the Catholic Foundation’s extreme generosity and support,” said Computer Lab teacher Paulette Roberts.  “OLV can continue to provide high quality educational content for our diverse student population and hold all of our students to extremely high standards.”

The school’s goal of providing differentiated instruction in technology to all of its students will be greatly enhanced.  Students will be able to access a variety of websites and digital tools to enhance creativity, communication, teamwork and problem solving – all skills necessary for the future.  The new computers are enabling lots of new project-based technology including digital books and video creation.

“This grant helps Our Lady of Victory in providing a 21st-century learning experience for all of our students in a faith-filled environment. We greatly appreciate the support provided by the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia,” said Principal George Wilkerson.

This grant was made possible due to the Conrads Family Education Fund, which also provides an automatic annual grant each Fall to every Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, thanks to a generous bequest from Jinny and James Conrads in 2010.
