TECH


Students participate in weekly Tech sessions as part of our Specialist timetable. 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 Ipads for our Year 3-6 students and a set of class Ipads for our Foundation to year 2 students. 

 

We are very mindful of cyber safety at WPS. We are an eSmart accredited school and are constantly in the process of teaching our students about cyber safety and responsible, informed use of technology.

Some of our Year 3-6 students participate in VEX Robotic competitions where they build their own robot that they control during a variety of different skills. We work closely with Galen Catholic College and its VEX teams.
