Access to ICT and Digital Technology
Our classrooms have interactive whiteboards and LED Panels, wireless network access, laptops and digital tools and devices to provide anywhere, anytime access to ICT. We run a multi-platform environment, providing access to iPads and
Windows based notebooks, laptops and desktops.
Housing enough computers for whole class access, the computer lab
is an integral part of the Library. Prep to Year 2 classes are timetabled in the lab on a
weekly basis. Years 3 to 6 make regular use of the school owned class sets of
notebooks and laptops.
All students are
registered to the online programs Mathletics and Reading Eggs. These can both be accessed at school, as well
as at home.
As part of our
distinctive STEAM program we offer a range of digital technologies and
resources to support these programs and student learning. Some of these resources include:
Our STEAM Room is open
at first break to all students and is a popular playing area for Makerspace,
robotic and coding activities. We have
Year 6 STEAM Mentors who assist our younger students during lunch time play.

digital technologies, ICT Capabilities and STEAM at our school.
