Future Directions in Technologyhttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Future-Directions-in-Technology.aspxFuture Directions in Technology<p>In 2019 St Peter’s is planning to start a school wide roll out of a 1:1 device program. We are conducting a survey as a way of informing all families of the initial planning stages and gain parental feedback on implications of the roll out. We also aim to gain a better understanding of student strengths and capabilities to assist in planning.</p><p><img alt="1to1Device.jpg" src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Future-Directions-in-Technology/1to1Device.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /> </p><p>By integrating information and communication technologies into all areas of the Australian Curriculum, our aim is to provide powerful and effective tools to enhance and accelerate learning, promote collaboration whilst increasing student engagement and strengthen 21st century skills necessary to meet the Australian Curriculum ICT requirements. Implementation of a 1:1 device program at St Peter’s is the next step to ensuring our students are lifelong learners, we will continue to work in partnership with our parents and wider school community to develop students into responsible digital citizens who are able to interact collaboratively as members of the connected global community.</p><p>Many schools run 1:1 programs in their upper Years (4-6). We have been investigating the benefits of whole school access to devices (Years. 1-6) and see huge potential for enhancing student learning with this model. When the roll out is complete each child in Years 1-6 will have their own iPad, students will receive a new iPad in Year 1 and year 4 with the device life span being three years. Preps will have access to a bank of iPads.</p><p>The initial phase of the 1:1 device roll out in 2019 would involve only years 1 and 4 followed by a gradual school wide integration.</p><p>Costing of 1:1 device program - While we are in these first stages of planning we are not able to confirm specific costs, however research shows schools with a similar program attribute between $400-$500 a year to meet the costs of the device, peripherals, applications, insurance, warranty’s and management. Currently our school fee structure includes a family I.T. levy, under the 1:1 device program this would be charged per student (years 1-6 only).</p><p>We ask that as many families as possible have their say. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

NAIDOC Weekhttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/NAIDOC-Week.aspxNAIDOC Week<p>This Friday, Year 6B will lead a NAIDOC themed assembly prayer. NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by all Australians. Under the theme - Because of Her, We Can! - NAIDOC Week 2018 was held nationally from 8 July – 15th July. As pillars of our society, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play - active and significant roles at the community, local, state and national levels. As leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate culture, language, music and art. Their achievements, their voice, their unwavering passion are examples of strength and have empowered past generations and paved the way for generations to come.</p><p><img alt="naidocweek2018.jpg" src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/NAIDOC-Week/naidocweek2018.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" />​</p>
