Technology and STEM 

@ St Louis

What a wonderful week we've had with our brilliant children at St Louis. We have begun to see our students  use technology in and around the school to help support their learning as they delve deeper into what it means to 'Dare to love, Dare To Learn, and Dare to lead!'

 

Week 4 will see a few more key events in this learning area, including the handing out of Chromebooks to our Year 4 students, a year 4 Parent as Partners Information Session for Chromebooks, as well as iPads returning to our junior grades.

 

 

 

Next week will also be our second week of  STEM learning in years 5 and 6. This week the students were exposed to a problem-solving challenge where they were encouraged to work collaboratively and innovatively to develop a solution. It was great to see the engagement and creativity coming from all of the teams that participated.

 

 
 
 
 

Our wonderful year 4 students will receive their Chromebooks in Week 4.

As always we are looking forward to working in partnership with families to ensure that everyone feels empowered and supported when it comes to using this technology to help enhance and transform our student's learning.

 

A key aspect of this will be having our parents/carers work with us in partnership.

This will start with a Parent as Partners Information Session on Thursday 18 February from 4:00 pm. This event can be accessed using the link below.
