This information has changed. Technology requirements for Grade 5 students are now the same as for grades 6-12 students. Please click the tab below for Technology for students coming into Grades 5-12.
Students coming into grade 5 are not expected to bring their own technology to school, although they are welcome to do so if it will support their learning needs. Grade 5 students will, instead, have access to a class set of Chromebook devices allowing them to explore digital citizenship, safety, and the role of technology as a tool to support their learning. The grade 5 teaching team will work with students to integrate the technology into their classroom learning. With guidance and support through the grade 5 year, students will gain an understanding of how technology fits into their world as a learner, and their responsibility to use technology in a safe and ethical manner, preparing them for bringing their own device in grade 6.
