From the Principal
St Mary’s College aims to promote excellence and provide challenging and stimulating learning experiences and opportunities that enable all students to explore and build on their gifts and talents. The College is also cognizant of the importance of providing our students with learning experiences, which provide our students with the 21st Century skills, knowledge and values that will ensure a successful transition from school to further training, education and/or the workplace.
I have much pleasure in announcing the St Mary’s College 1:1 iPad Program. This program aims to create a technologically rich learning environment for our boys, one which leads to innovative teaching and learning. Through this program boys create a greater independence to become life long and life wide learners.
This SMC iPad Portal aims to outline the philosophy, guidelines, policies, conditions and questions associated with this program. This booklet explains why we have moved to iPads from laptops.
Our challenge is not only to ensure these iPads exponentially add to the enquiry and learning of the boys but that the boys embrace this technology appropriately and always keep them in good working order.
I trust that in partnership, we can enable your son to have the most technologically beneficial learning environment possible for his future.
