Computers and ICT

KPS aims to use Information Communication Technology (ICT) to inspire students through learning that is meaningful, challenging and connecting. We want our students to use technology to improve their engagement, experience and achievement so that they become responsible 21st century digital citizens.

The 1-1 learning is where both student and teacher have one internet connected netbook computer for use at school and at home. Currently this program is in place through Years 4, 5 and 6.

The new laptop trolley is housed in the library and is now up and running, stocked with 29 new netbook computers. This is a fantastic resource for the school and will make ICT sessions for the junior years much more efficient and beneficial. Students from Prep to Year 3 access these computers on a weekly basis, with Years 4 – 6 using them on an as-needed basis due to their netbook program.

Each classroom is connected to the school-wide computer network, with the Year 1 and 2 classes having one iPad to use in each class. Every classroom teacher also has access to an interactive whiteboard in order to facilitate student engagement and learning.

There are 7 additional computers available in the main library
