In 2016 the school introduced a one-to-one iPad programme which has since redefined learning with innovative use of technology supported by a dedicated team of teachers.The transformative use of technology reflects the school’s vision to connect to real-world issues through inquiry – learners take advantage of the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices to explore learning outside of the classroom and become immersed in authentic real-world experiences.

Technology enhances teaching and learning

The innovative use of technology allows teachers to personalise learning – the one-to-one programme has transformed the way in which learners learn languages and develop confidence and fluency.Teachers are also benefitting from the increased use of technology to enhance how they plan, instruct and assess learning for all students. A novel approach to professional development also empowers teachers to redefine their roles through innovative use of technology.Explains the school’s principal, Shirley Harwood, “None of us can predict the future with any certainty but we all recognise the increasingly important role of technology in everyday life today. This much-coveted award is the culmination of several years of hard work across our teams to build a robust infrastructure, train staff to high standards and think creatively about how effective use of technology can best impact learning.“This recognition is only the beginning and we are excited to explore what lies ahead.”
