Information and Communications Technology

 

As we are a school of the 21st Century Information and Communications Technology are central to every aspect of the student learning. Every classroom is fitted with the latest Interactive Whiteboards giving students and staff instant access to worldwide teaching and learning resources. The students have easy access to computers from Prep upwards with plans in place to have laptops throughout the school in the near future.

 

Computers are integrated into daily classroom activities and skills are developed in the computer lab which are relevent to classroom investigations and projects.

 

 

Students learn to:


research using the internet, refine their search engine techniques and evaluate the relative accuracy of information on differet websites.

 

create and tell stories using scanners, digital cameras and software to record, create and edit movies, slide shows, 3D worlds, cartoons and animations.
