Computers enrich the educational environment of all students and support the achievement of quality in education. They are now an integral part of our Australian society. Computers are used to assist students in many areas, including acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills. With appropriate software and teacher guidance computers promote a co-operative approach to problem solving.
We recognise that computers can be used by teachers to promote the active involvement and engagement of students in their own learning. We presently have a large supply of computers & laptops (which includes both Mac and PC platforms) and iPads. The school is fully networked using both cable and wireless technology. The students have access to a data projector, digital cameras, video cameras and scanners. Each learning area has interactive whiteboards.
Students also have supervised access to the internet. All students must have a parent permission note to use the internet and agree to our Acceptable User Policy.
