1:1 Technology

A new Surface Device program was rolled out to our Year 7 students in 2020.

Each device has the software students need pre-installed, including the Office Suite, the Adobe programs, and other subject specific applications. Additional software can be deployed remotely by our Information Technology staff when required.

In 2021, the 1:1 Microsoft Surface program will expand to Years 4, 7 and 8 with opt-in arrangements for students in any other year levels.

Once the program is fully run out, students will also receive a new device every 3 years, typically in Year 4, 7 and 10. This will mean that students are always working on a device capable of the demands of evolving digital learning opportunities.

Our Surface Device program aids students in the learning process, to help them to gain understanding, organise knowledge and present their ideas. Digital literacy is a most important skill in society and crucially required of students as they move from school into tertiary studies and the workforce.

The Surface Device program and the digital curriculum that we offer our students will prepare them with the digital skills they need for their future.
