Kuraby Laptop Program for Year 3 - 6.

Kuraby State School has a Laptop Program in Years 3 - 6. This was done after surveying the parent community and a trial in selected classes to gauge community opinion. Based on this information the school now allows students in years 3 to 6 to bring a laptop or iPad from home to use during school time.

After a period of time we have seen many students take up the offer to use the recommended student owned laptop at school where students, teachers and parents have commented on improved engagement of students with their learning.

Additional feedback from parents has also included that the issue of price has been a factor that has stopped them from participating in this program.

Our school believes that student participation in this program is beneficial for student learning and therefore would like to see as many students as possible involved. To assist in this matter the school would like to offer the two following options.

Option 1

Apple or windows based laptop – a basic laptop is more than adequate for student use – must be Wi-Fi capable.

Option 2

iPad - student owned laptops and iPads ensure the continuity of learning as students have access to their work at home as well as school. Conditions of use must be agreed to by students and parents before the device can be used in school. Also the device must be inspected by our school system tech.  Students can collect a permission form from the Admin. office.

Please consider this information. The school looks forward to continuing working in conjunction with all families to improve the learning for all students at this school.
