Last week was an exciting week at St. Mark’s Primary School…the 5/6 1:1 Laptop Program was launched!
It started with a gathering in the school hall with students, parents and teachers to discuss the program. Families asked many questions and took home all of the important documentation to read over.
1:1 simply means that there is one laptop per student. Two week later, 124 ecstatic students received their very own laptop for use at school and at home.
We will be using the laptops to improve our learning at school and beyond. The teachers are really looking forward to see how using the laptops will help students to develop their knowledge.
