Technology is an integral part of the way we teach

Students are exposed to a wide variety of Information Technology at St Aloysius’ College and technology has been integrated into all aspects of our teaching methods. We work with students, staff and families to use technology to develop educational potential and learning skills. Students learn to integrate technology effectively into their lives and learning environment.

We have access to a variety of multimedia hardware, including digital cameras and video cameras. Our software range is extensive, including video and photo editing and the Adobe and Microsoft Office suites. We use a wide range of Apple software, including iMovie, Photo Booth and Garageband. There are a number of guidelines provided to students for the use of their iPads and technology in general. Students are constantly reminded of the appropriate use of technology and software. Information sessions are also available to parents to help them support and supervise their sons.

Senior School

All Senior School Year Groups are Bring Your Own (Designated) Device (BYODD).

The College prefers parents to source a laptop for their son from the BYODD portal provided by the College, but understands that in some cases, families might prefer to source a laptop from elsewhere.

Junior School

Every Junior School student is provided with an iPad. The College has full control of the applications that are installed and students are not able to modify what is available.

All Junior School classrooms have interactive screens, there’s a computer lab with thirty iMacs and multiple mobile laptop trolleys with MacBook Airs.
