 At Holy Family School we use and promote new and emerging technologies to support and enrich student learning. A wide range of technology is used to help develop 21st century learning skills in all students. As with all Wollongong Diocese schools, we typically use Apple products.

MacBook laptops, iMac desktops and iPads are utilised to enhance and support learning in various Key Learning Areas in all classrooms and the Library. These devices are used by students for research purposes, enrichment tasks, communication and for the presentation of new learning.

Every classroom and the Library is equipped with a SMARTBoard (an Interactive Whiteboard). The interactive whiteboards are used to introduce new concepts, consolidate learning and support learning intervention.

All students and parents are given a Technology Agreement form to sign in order to use technology in our school. This form also gives permission to use the internet and allow photos to be used on our school website and/or local media.
