WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE COMPUTER LAB

Our entire school is benefitting from a Diocesan Grant that allowed us to upgrade our network infrasture.  We have a new server, firewall and back-up system.  These upgrades will allow us to increase the number of wireless zones in the school along with increased broadband internet speed.

Thanks to the Barnes & Noble bookfair held the Sunday after Thankgiving, our school was able to purchase five (5) robotics kit which will be used in Grades 5 - 8.  Students will build robots and then use iPads to program the robots to do specific functions.

Students in Grades 3 - 8 this year will be focussing on Google apps and how they compare with Microsoft Office.  

All classes in grades 3 - 8 should practice keyboarding at least three times per week for 10 minutes and/or until they can complete their assigned drill.

  • Grades 3 - 8 all use the website speedtypingonline.com to practice their keyboarding skills in class for 10 minutes each session.
