    ICT

    ICT stands for information and communication technology.

    Year 7 students study ICT/Computing as a discrete subject and across the curriculum. In years 8 and 9 they learn ICT/Computing  through using it in subjects across the curriculum. This strategy is designed to ensure that relevant use of IT supports learning in all areas. As a Google School who use Google Apps for Education students are familiar with using an online learning environment in a range of subjects.
