Students at Brandon Park Primary School develop many facets of their learning through the use of technology. Our Information Resource Centre has a computer lab of 25 computers, an Interactive Whiteboard and access to the school library. This makes the centre the perfect place for students to use both technology and text resources.
Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard, which is a wonderful teaching and learning tool that the students find highly engaging.

iPods and iPads are used to further develop literacy and numeracy skills and students use applications that develop number facts, spelling skills, phonemic awareness, visual literacy and a multitude of other skills. Movie making, digital storytelling and photo slides are some of the other ways our students creatively demonstrate their learning. iPads, digital cameras and video recorders complement these processes.
The students from Foundation – 4 all have access to computers in their own classes as each class has a set of 6-8 computers which are all wirelessly connected to the Internet allowing students to access email and digital learning activities. Senior grades have class sets of wireless connected netbooks.
