Tasks set for students can be more complex as they have so much access to technology and information. Students are better equipped as global citizens and for the world of the future.
We are appreciative to our community for its vision and support in making our digital learning environment a reality, as well as to the Federal Government for their commitment to computers in schools and assistance in facilitating the education of our young people in a global technological world.
