St Mary's had more teachers represented than any other school and one in particiular drew special praise from the minister. Minister Hanafin said,
"The work done by the teachers here today as part of TeachNet Ireland is helping to enrich the experience of students and teachers online. The programme funders and partners have played a significant role in helping to enable teachers to create content that is interesting and relevant to subjects taught in Irish schools through the medium of new technologies."
