If your child has a device, they are welcome to bring it along to enhance learning, however please ensure that it is ‘school compatible’ so it will need Google drive and Docs, plus any games need to be age appropriate. The device would need to be IPad mini size or larger. IPods and Smart Phones are not suitable for working on in the class.
We expect to be 1-1 Chrome Books by the middle of week 2 so if you are considering purchasing a device for your child, we would encourage a Chrome Book as they are the most suitable for school. Noel Leeming has a great deal on them at the moment.
Room 13 and Room 14 are working together in the Hall and Library at the moment until the new build has been completed sometime this term. We will be combining both of our expertise [Mel and Lesley] to provide your child with a fantastic year of learning. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to either one of us.
