“The way in which students learn is constantly changing. To continue to provide the best education for our students we need to continually adapt and change”.
Student access to a networked computer 24/7 has fundamentally changed the way our students learn. There is little doubt that new and emerging technologies will shape the future in which our students will live. To ensure that students are fully prepared for life after school, the use of technology is integrated into all aspects of their learning.
1:1 Computing Principles
- All students are required to bring a personal computing device to school every day.
- Students be permitted to utilise any laptop/ultrabook/netbook capable of running windows 8.1 or higher or OSX 10.9 with a screen size between 10.1” – 15.6” purchased from any supplier
