Last year Garbally College was one of a few pioneering schools in the country to take part in the School Digital Champions program. The team, consisting of students from a variety of years, were highly commended by the Minister for Communications Denis Naughton on their Garbally Tech website. It was designed to help older people in the community learn computer basics. Some of the opportunities the Digital Champions had were:
- A trip to the Irish Google Headquarters in Dublin.
- A training day on coding, video development and social media marketing.
- A trip to All Hallows College to present their project and meet other schools involved in the event.
