Prep to Year 4 students use and share school-provided sets of iPads to access the internet and other educational applications that embed and advance learning skills.
From Year 5 the College has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program in place that requires each student have their own personal computing device that meets school specifications.
For Years 5 and 6, students are required to provide their own personal iPad for class.
From Year 7, a laptop is required.
In Secondary, students use technology more on a daily basis to access the student portal and digital learning platforms that host daily school schedules, and subject information including assessments. The BYOD program supports student inquiry and problem solving by enabling the use of real-time data anytime and anywhere, supporting the manipulation and presentation of that data and associated information in a diversity of ways.
We are thrilled to have on staff teachers recognised for their excellence in digital teaching and winners of state awards. Our commitment to digital learning extends to subject skilling in a range of software applications appropriate to student studies. In many cases these are educational versions of popular business and design applications.
All students participate in digital citizenship programs that include topics such as cyber safety; the legal, ethical and acceptable use of digital technology; and social media protocols.
