Technology

Technology is integrated within the curriculum areas of the Prep and Primary Years. All students have access to computers in their classrooms. P-3 have a computer bench with laptops for use within the classroom and Yrs 4-6 have access to 1to1 laptops that are located in their classrooms.

In the early years of school, students build their familiarity with login, drill and practice, extending reading and problem solving through programs such as Mathletics®, Study Ladder and Reading Eggs®.

As students move through the Primary years, they use technology to enrich their literacy, numeracy, problem solving, typing and research skills. Furthermore, they develop an understanding of Microsoft Office suite and are assisted in the learning to use other applications and web tools.

Interactive Promethean boards are in all Primary classrooms and this allows whole class interactive learning in subject areas such as literacy and numeracy, whilst building a familiarity with technology.

In addition, a bank of iPads are available with applications for Prep to Year 6 students. We have a range of digital equipment this is used throughout the Primary school such as Bee Bots, Makey Makeys and other digital software coding programs such as Scratch.
