Technology & BYO iPad Program

Mosman Prep is well resourced in all areas of Technology including infrastructure, hardware, software and staff training. Our resources and learning program is overseen by a fulltime Director of Technology.

Technology is integrated across all key learning areas from Kindergarten to Year 6. Boys have access to Apple laptops and iPads on a daily basis, and they are taught how to use a variety of applications for word processing, presentations, movie making, animation, coding, robotics, blogging and how to research effectively using technology. Additionally, the School offers a variety of applications to complement the literacy and numeracy topics the students are taught in class.

The School’s network (consisting of wired and wireless access) is fast, reliable and accessible throughout the School. The network is also protected using the Palo Alto Firewall and web filter, ensuring the students work in a safely monitored environment.

All classes are taught STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) from Kindergarten through to Year 6. 

All boys from Years 4 to Year 6 are given their own Google Education account, giving them access to a variety of cloud-based applications such as Mail, Calendar, Drive and Docs. This allows the boys to easily create, edit and share their work with other students and teachers. 

BYO iPad Program 2023
Students in Years 5 and 6 will be required to provide their own iPad, keyboard and earphones, which they will bring to school daily. Year 4 students in 2023 will be issued a new school iPad. This will remain the property of the school.

Please refer to the Downloads section below for all information relating to the iPad program. In 2023, The School will continue to use the service of a Mobile Device Management (JAMF) solution to install applications and set restrictions on behalf of the parents.
