The vision for contemporary learning across the Cairns Diocese is for Information Communication Technology (ICT) to be integral to learning and teaching in our schools to “empower those in our community to engage with and enrich our ever changing world”. (Learning and Teaching Policy Diocese of Cairns – CES)
Information and Communication Technologies
The school site is wirelessly networked, with extensive use of email as a communication tool for staff and parents. All students access our Media Centre, which contains 30 desktop computers, and a data projector, for weekly skills lessons. All students in Prep to Year 6 utilise interactive whiteboards for everyday use in the classroom. All students have access to laptop computers or iPads for everyday use in their classrooms, across all learning areas. It has been a priority of Holy Cross to build on current access for all students to devices on a daily basis with our main purpose to expose all students to a multitude of devices including iPads, desktops, windows, apple etc.
A teacher, librarian and an IT Technician are available to assist staff and students whenever needed.
