Learning Technology

Our networked computer laboratory is in the library while all classrooms have access to the internet through the school’s Wi-Fi network. All children are taught computer skills from Kindergarten in accordance with NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabuses. Each child has access to headphones however, we strongly encourage students to bring their own.

Students in Years 4 to Year 6 use a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program and organise their work through Office 365 and OneNote. We specify a Windows 10-based laptop or tablet in Years 4-6 as this is most compatible with our network. The school has device specifications and this information may be requested at the front office. The devices specified for use at our school are also appropriate for use at St Pius X High School, thus making the transition into secondary education easier for our students.

All classrooms have either a Smart Board (interactive whiteboard) or Smart TV. The library also has a Smart TV and video-conferencing capabilities that allow classes to undertake virtual excursions at various offsite locations such as the National Portrait Gallery, Sydney Opera House, National Maritime Museum and the Powerhouse Museum.
