Technology

OSHC builds upon the BYOD* program on offer at Walkerville Primary School and allows its students to use their own devices (iPads) for homework purposes during after school hours care. Supervision is provided by staff during these times. Students also have access to the Walkerville Primary School MacBooks in the library. Additionally, OSHC provides iPads during after school care for a range of purposes, including entertainment, using pre-approved apps. Personal devices, including mobile phones and iPads are stored in a lockable filing cabinet when not in use. Please note that it is the responsibility of students to hand their devices up for safe storage until they are collected.
