ICT

 In St. Peter’s, we pride ourselves on having a wide range of ICT available for our children to use to enhance their learning. For a number of years we have an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) in each classroom (8 in total). We have two laptop trolleys with 16 DELL laptops and 16 Compaq laptops, so we can have one laptop for each child (depending on the activity). Each classroom is equipped with a digital camera, speaker system, microphone and at least one set of headphones.

Additions in 2011 were new work stations in 4 classrooms and in the library. On each of these stations there is room for 3-4 computer screens. We also have a TV screen set up in our main reception area, which can broadcast the latest information to parents almost instantly. An overhead data  projector and screen was added to the main hall.

2012 saw the provision of visualisers in all classrooms. These are another very useful resource to support the work carried out by teachers and pupils

Early 2013 saw the introduction of 6 iPads – excellent for station teaching particularly in the Junior classes. We have dowloaded excellent apps to enhance both literacy and numeracy and the children are not alone enjoying their activities but also learning lots!! September 2013 saw 6 more iPads provided for the Senior end of the school as well as an iPad for Special Needs Education.

All this wonderful technology was made possible by the continued support of the parents and community during our fundraising activities. We also have wireless internet access and pages on our website devoted to interactive educational activities – IWB (Interactive White Board). We hope to showcase some of the work we do on this page, so make sure to check back often!
