IRC Information Research Centre

A designated technology teacher and teacher librarian take all students for technology lessons weekly with other special programs being offered.

Our Information Research Centre (IRC) has interactive whiteboards as well as numerous windows, iBook and iMac computers and ipads for the students use. We also have further interactive whiteboards in all classrooms throughout the school. Additionally, in the IRC you'll find video conferencing units as well as a large screen theatre with full surround sound. Our students have a wonderful time using technology evidenced by our wins in the state Centre for Learning Innovation Awards.

The IRC also contains a well stocked library of numerous literacy and informational material. Specific literature learning occurs during Information Research and Technology sessions. Students have regular weekly class visits to the IRC for lessons but are welcome to visit during recess and lunch times to enjoy a range of alternative fun and challenging learning activities that includes coding, robotics and 3D printing.

350 ipads are used in classes daily to engage and to promote investigation and creativity.  This technology has enabled out teachers to teach differently and has provided differentiated learning opportunities for our students and Stage 2 and Stage 3 are BYOD classes.
