Information Technology

In the 21st century, technology has become an indispensable part of everyday life, from how we access information, to how we communicate. We are passionate about our students being digitally literate and discerning in their use of technology to collaborate, create, critique and communicate.

We are committed to using Information Technologies to improve the outcomes for all members of our community, and most importantly for our students and their learning. Through the considered use of our online environment, students are supported in their learning and we are committed to a high level of engagement and communication with parents. Students have a wide range of software at hand and from Years 5 to 12, our students Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to use in the classroom. We are also aware of the need for balance and to recognise the times when face-to-face and physical resources and experiences are more beneficial.

As the opportunities with innovative technologies explodes, we want to support our students to take every advantage of the advances. From a range of clubs in the Junior and Senior School, our students can be learning to code, create apps and Internet of Things enabled devices. Within the classroom, students make use of virtual reality to enhance understandings, learn to code and fly drones and use a range of technologies to solve problems and present solutions. 

It is important that we are educating for our students to be responsible and ethical users of Information Technology. That’s why we’re committed to all of our students understanding what it is to be eSmart and be safe, smart and responsible online from Pre-Prep to Year 12, within Information Literacy lessons and as part of our wellbeing programme.
