St Vincent’s Primary School provides a technology rich environment to support students with their learning. Technology is integrated across the curriculum, supporting students learning within the digital world in which we live.
Our 1: 1 program for Years 4-6 has an emphasis on the laptop as a learning tool to foster and promote students’ capacity to collaborate, share information and experiences, work across the domains of the curriculum and be self-directed in their learning. The program is guided by teachers whose skill and expertise ensure that the curriculum is delivered in an engaging manner, relevant to the 21st century learner.

Accidents happen but fortunately our computers are covered 24/7. Parents can download a copy of the policy details here.
In the event that a student laptop is accidentally damaged away from school or is not working during the holidays, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to submit the computer for repairs. The steps in this process are outlined below:
Willful damage and/or neglect are not covered by the insurance policy and parents/guardians will be solely responsible for the cost of repairs and/or replacement of the computer and associated hardware/software. Loan computers will not be issued in these circumstances.
