Technology at Home

We encourage you to use technology at home with your child. Children are capable of exploring, using and experimenting with a range of technology, finding their way around fairly quickly. This helps build extremely skilled individuals who are able to use a variety of apps, in a variety of contexts. As technology is ever-growing and more relevant in our lives, it is also important to help promote a safe and sensible use of technology that is mirrored between the home and school life. Supporting and encouraging your child from home will only continue to build that bond and love of learning through the use of technology.
