Use of technology in the classroom

Our vision is to assist learners in developing information literacy skills and ethical practices that guide their learning now and in the future. We do this by using technology in a relevant, meaningful, responsible, and authentic way to empower student learning. We nurture a community that is adaptable in its approach to information literacy and one that endeavours to remain current in the application of technology in teaching and learning. We equip all learners with skills and knowledge that empower them to be leaders in their future careers. We leverage technology as a personal organisational tool for individuals to create their own path of learning. K1 to Grade 5 students are provided with access to MacBooks, ChromeBooks and iPads to support their learning. Grade 6 to 12 have a 1:1 MacBook programme where students are required to purchase their own MacBooks.
