Developing students who can combine their subject knowledge and use digital technologies to make connections and help solve problems will be well prepared for life in the Secondary School and beyond. They will be highly valued as they can apply key disciplinary concepts and principles to interconnected, complex problems, while also being willing to learn and open to change.
Our students have access to a great range of digital technologies and expertise to support their innovative and entrepreneurial activities. These include hardware such as Surface Pros, iPads, VEX Robotics, microbit and Beebots.
We have many co-curricular activities in this space including Girls in Tech, Robotics Club, Movie Maker and MakerSpace – where students can explore and develop new concepts in digital technologies and develop their entrepreneurial skills.
Our unique StartUp entrepreneurial programme is offered to students from Year 5 to Year 11. The optional programme takes place over one term and sees students find solutions to real world problems and create and develop products and ideas that have the potential to become a viable business. Students work with industry mentors in the development of their ideas.
Our students are given many opportunities to develop essential ICT skills in focused digital technologies lessons as well as in the context of various other subject areas.
The use of iPads from Kindergarten to Year 2 gives students the opportunity to learn the basics of using a digital device and to build important skills in areas such as digital citizenship, word processing, photography and accessing work through online platforms.
Our Year 3-6 students are part of our Surface Pros for students programme, allowing students to develop a variety of skills including touch typing, file organisation and digital citizenship.
Students also have access to industry-standard software in all subject areas.
