All students deserve to have access to quality and appropriate digital tools and resources in order to learn, communicate, collaborate and achieve their best.
St James the Apostle Primary School has a School Network, which can be accessed from all learning spaces. The network is available both wired and wirelessly around the School. All main learning spaces have at least 6 desktop computers, which are connected to the School Network. There are another thirty PCs in our ICT Lab. Students also have access to banks of netbooks, Chromebook and iPad devices to use during learning time, with wireless connectivity to the School Network. Year 5 and 6 students are invited to BYOD.
Through our network, students have access to a variety of software and multimedia applications and to a library resource centre. Teachers book the ICT Lab when needed, for use in all areas of the curriculum.
Students in Years Prep to 6 have individual access to G Suite for Education, including online file storage and e-mail facilities. The network is also connected to the Catholic Education Victoria Network (CEVN) and Catholic Network Australia (CNA) which allows filtered access to the Internet. Through CEVN and CNA we are able to communicate with all schools across the state.
