Technology (and ICT)

We are so proud to be able to offer 1 to 1 devices (iPads) to all our students Foundation- Grade 6. This was initially made possible through support from the Gwen and Edna Jones Foundation. Parents and Friends have provided funding to update devices as our school has expanded. Subsequently, grants have successfully added to our technology equipment. The Port of Portland assisted us in 2023 to provide keyboards to assist students in using their iPads for writing and keyboarding classes. 

Students will use their iPad to enhance their learning throughout their time at NDPS (which stays at school and remains the property of the school). Keyboards are added in Grade 3-6 and all year levels are provided with headphones. 

Other technology employed throughout the school include online games, interactive whiteboards, wifi, document cameras and so much more. Educational apps enable us to create fun engaging learning, from Kahootz, and SoundsWrite through to typing tutors, Mathletics and Prodigy. 

Educational applications are added and updated regularly, with costs covered through Parent Payments. See staff if you would like to add apps to home devices that compliment the ones used at school.
