There are two Internet capable labs with 32 computers in each and one mini lab of 13 computers in the library. All classes have the opportunity to access the labs. The school also iPads in the library which all classes may access; as well as iPads in classrooms. This structure ensures student ICT learning is future focused and embedded in daily practice.
