1:1 iPad Program

We are very excited to announce that our 2015 Grades 3-6 students have been invited to take part in our 1:1 Bring Your Own iPad to school Program. We have had an extremely positive response from our school community about the program and our students and teachers have been doing some wonderful things using the iPads. The iPads are a great tool to support student learning and since the program has commenced we have seen an increase in student engagement, collaboration and differentiated learning. We are looking forward to seeing what else our students and teachers can do throughout the year, using the iPads.
