 iPad Program – Year 3 to Year 8

 iPads are the 1:1 Personal Learning Technology tools for our Years 3 to 8 students. With the ability to personalise their devices by accessing relevant apps, students are able to own their learning experience.

 1:1 personalised technology in the form of iPads empowers our students by giving them ownership of how they learn, making education relevant to their digital lives and preparing them for their futures. It also allows our teachers to provide real-time feedback through digital formative and summative assessments and data.
