We strive to embed eLearning within every aspect of our teaching and learning. We wish to create an eLearning environment that will empower students to become responsible, critical, intuitive, skilful and sophisticated lifelong learners. This will prepare them for a technology rich future.
Our students enjoy a very well-resourced ICT program, with 1:1 Chromebooks for our Year 5/6 students and 1:1 iPads in Year 2-4 students. We have a class iPad set for Foundation and Year 1 classes.
We are very mindful about cybersafety at WPS. We are an eSmart accredited school and are constantly in the process of teaching our students about cybersafety and responsible, informed use of technology.
