Good morning to our current Year 1 – Year 4 parents,
In last week's school newsletter we provided all families with the summarised results from our digital technologies survey. If you missed it, click here to review the article, and you can download the results by clicking on the button below.
We have now opened a Qkr! product (located under "Surveys") for all families to select one of the following options for Year 2 - 5 in 2023:
1. Providing your own iPad (BYOD) for 1:1 use only
2. Opting to access our device hire program (at a cost of $120 per year for device maintenance and upkeep) for 1:1 use only
3. Using School Provided Technology (SPT) where the ratio will be 1:2 or 1:3 use
Our BYOD families will also have the option to indicate whether they would prefer to securely store their device at school during the school week.
Please be assured, our teachers will skilfully manage all three technology options within their classrooms, and as such this does not factor into class formation each year. Families should feel able to choose the device option that fits best for them, confident their child’s teacher will manage the teaching and learning within the room, including the integration of technology, as one tool available to them to encourage their learners to create and connect.
We will need to hear back from all families by Monday 21 November 2022 so we can ensure we have sufficient equipment and storage space ready for the new year.
