We equip our students with skills and knowledge to be safe and effective users and producers of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), through purposeful teaching and learning experiences, supported by the provision of appropriate technology and skilled staff.
We promote ICT as an essential tool for inquiry, communication, collaboration, content creation and learning and ICT capabilities are incorporated through the whole school curriculum.
We integrate the IB learner profile attributes into all aspects of ICT-based teaching and learning, developing international mindedness and the characteristics of effective learners in our students.
We provide well-equipped facilities and up to date digital resources to our students and staff, to support their ICT activities and programmes.
Students from Foundation to Year 3 are provided with an iPad for their use at school. From Year 4 to Year 7, families provide an iPad which belongs to the child. This reflects the change in requirement for the older students, as they often take their work from school to home using a device.
Cyber Safety is the safe and responsible use of Information and Communication Technologies. Cyber Safety education teaches students how to act in a safe and responsible manner on the Internet and in other connected environments. Cyber Safety workshops are conducted with students on or near Safer Internet Day each February and at other times during the year as necessary.
For examples of the many ICT activities happening in our school and for information about Cyber Safety, please visit our ICT blog.
