At St Joseph’s Catholic School we aim to prepare our students by providing them with life skills that will prepare them to take their place in the world.
In our ever changing and adapting world technology is becoming more and more prevalent. Our students are exposed to a range of digital opportunities, allowing them to learn the necessary 21st century skills to participate in our digital world.
In the junior school (Years 0-3) the children have access to i-Pads. These provide opportunities for the children to learn how to operate an i-pad, research skills, and use a variety of apps to support and further their learning in the different curriculum areas.
From Years 4-8, the students have access to school chromebooks. The students are taught how to access content safely online, create and share their learning, and act appropriately in online settings. The use of digital technology and exploration of the digital technology curriculum strand allows for the students to explore their creativity and share their learning and knowledge in new and exciting ways.
As staff, we have been undergoing professional development through Cognition Education and our Kahui Ako (COL). This means that our knowledge is also developing and we are up to date with current pedagogical practices.
