Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Wyoming, will be adding to its fleet of Chromebooks and iPads, to prepare students for the technology careers of the future.

The purchase is to ensure the school has enough tools as they plan to introduce computer coding classes across kindergarten to Year 6 in 2017. This term, the school’s Year 3 students will be learning coding and programming for smart apps, animation and robotic applications.

“It is our school’s view that the skills required of students for tomorrow will be about being technologically adept and discerning problem solvers,” said Principal, Mr Frank Cohen. “It is no longer just acceptable to be able to read, write, and do arithmetic. “Students need to be able to gather information, synthesise it and apply it in all manner of work places and situations,” he said.
