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 research. Additionally, the school offers a variety of applications to compliment 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 a Cyberhound web filtering system, 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 Apps 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
Students in these Years 4, 5 and 6 will be required to have their own iPad and a keyboard, which they will bring to school each day.
