Children of today are digital natives. Preparing them for the digital world ahead is vital and is a responsibility we take seriously. Viewbank Primary School believes that digital technologies should be embedded into the curriculum, therefore students use devices in the classroom when required. A 'Bring Your Own Device' 1:1 iPad Program operates in Years 5 and 6 and a school-funded 1:2 iPad Program functions in other year levels. All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and a computer lab of desktop iMacs is available for classes to use in the school library on a timetabled basis. Students in specialist classes also have access to iPads and use of all digital technologies at Viewbank PS occurs safely in accordance with our Student e-Smart Code of Conduct Agreement.
Each week students from any year level are invited to participate in ‘Code Club’ during lunchtime on Fridays. Students will develop and further their coding knowledge through different activities and projects using a range of resources.
