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 3 to Year 6 are given their own Google Education account, giving them access to a variety of cloud-based applications such as email, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Google Classroom. This allows the boys to easily create, edit and share their work with other students and teachers.
iPad Program 2024
We are phasing out the Bring Your Own (BYO) iPad Program format and only students in Year 6 in 2024 are required to provide their own iPad, keyboard and earphones, which they will bring charged to and from school daily.
In its pursuit of exceptional education, Mosman Prep continues its new iPad program format for Year 4 and 5 students in 2024. This initiative equips each student with a new school-issued iPad, fostering a seamless and secure learning experience. All devices are identical, pre-charged, and locked down for security. Families contribute an annual levy, and the iPads remain at school until graduation. At this point, families own the fully paid-off devices, ensuring consistent technology access throughout their Mosman Prep journey.
Please refer to the Downloads section below for all information relating to the iPad program. In 2024, 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.
