Technology plays a fundamental role in our lives.
As such, it is our responsibility to teach how it can best enhance students lives personally and professionally while with us, and when they leave our care. Our school wide policy around Responsible Digital Citizenship brings this educative belief to life. Students receive a new laptop in Year 7, and again in Year 10.
While staff and students enjoy the benefits of working with Apple laptops (one-to-one), our ICT support team ensures devices and software are ready for the classroom.
Students download software and programs that they need, when they need. Rather than being handed a ready-made computer with everything they require (and things they won’t!) already loaded, we encourage students to choose the most appropriate program or software for the purpose, and use it accordingly. This model aims to encourage young people to be critical and active in their use of technology rather than passively letting it make decisions for them.
We are committed to constantly updating our skills in technology and engage in professional development. Useful, authentic and practical programs, software and websites are explored for what they might offer your child in the classroom.
To support learning and teaching, we manage a sophisticated network with wireless access in every learning space.
All students are supplied with an Apple laptop. At the start of the school year new students, including Year 7 students, collect their devices at an ICT forum for students and their parents. The forum also explains the College’s policies and terms and conditions of use of the laptops.
Our current practice is to supply students with devices at the start of Year 7 and Year 10. Families retain ownership of the devices after this timeframe. For additional details visit Finance.
