Parent ICT Information Evening

All parents are invited to the next Parent ICT Information Evening to be held in the College- Chapel on Thursday November 5 starting at 7:00pm.

We are now over a year into our 1:1 journey and we believe it is an appropriate time to hold another ICT information evening at the College. With the boys now settling into their daily routines of managing and using their iPads at school and at home, it is fitting we discuss some of the more important issues associated with use of 1:1 devices in the Junior, Middle and Senior school.

Some of the topics that will be discussed at the information evening included:

-¢ 1:1 devices and teaching and learning

-¢ Managing the iPad at home

-–ª Family ICT Agreements

-–ª Cyber Safety and Parent Resources

-–ª ICT Addiction

-¢ Device protocols and Responsible Use

-¢ App4: student and parent iPad Diary

-¢ iPad app purchases

– – – – Appropriateness

– – – – Agreement guidelines

– – – – – In-app purchasesã

– – – – – Games

-¢ Demonstration of the iPads in use at school

-¢ Q & A

It is envisaged the evening will run for approximately one hour. All interested parents are invited to attend to hear the presentations and also to ask questions and offer feedback.

If you intend coming to this evening could you please RSVP to

We look forward to seeing you on November 5.
