  • Interactive whiteboards in all classrooms
  • A green screen located in the Resource Centre
  • Classroom desktop computers
  • Two computer suites
  • An audio visual system in the hall for school events with a motorised widescreen, ceiling mounted data projector and surround speakers all able to be remotely operated.
  • An sophisticated outdoor sound system
  • An upgraded high speed internet service
  • Whole school coverage of high speed Wifi
  • Scorelink database – comprehensive record of student learning
  • Skype connections to our Sister School in the Philippines (A. Mabini Elementary)
