The implementation and use of technology throughout Saint Mary's Catholic College supports our vision of offering rich, well resourced, relevant and diverse curriculum for learning in the 21st Century.
The uptake of technology tools and electronic ways of working has successfully minimised our paper footprint and ensured that an environmentally responsible and sustainable approach to resource access is at the core of how we operate in our classrooms.
Fundamental to maintaining the Saint Mary's Catholic College commitment to access technology tools for all students, we have designed our 'College Managed Device Program' to guarantee equitable, reliable, affordable and sustainable device solutions that ensure students have access to technology throughout the curriculum from Prep to Year 12. Our device access design also ensures that our students are fully prepared with the skillset demands of NAPLAN online and the digital literacy skills that set our students up for success through their learning journey and beyond.
Students in Prep to Year 2 are exposed to regular use of technology through learning with iPads. Students in Years 3 to 6 have available 1:1 iPads for class learning. As students progress to secondary school, students have 1:1 access to Laptops.
