Leeming Primary School takes a positive, innovative and accountable approach to learning. Learning is our focus and we encourage and support it in all students, staff and parents.
To this end, after a lengthy consultation period involving staff, parents and the School Board, we commenced a Laptop Program in Year 4 2013 and this has continued into the future for Year 4, 5 and 6 students. Year 3 students may also be included if the are in a composite 3/4 class.
One of our key learning targets is to use pedagogical practices that effectively integrate technology. The Laptop Program gives practical expression to this principle.
Leeming Primary School aims to be a technology rich school integrating technology into all curriculum areas to enhance teaching and learning.
Students will use their laptops at school and home, allowing them to create, collaborate and connect; to extend their learning beyond the classroom. The Program aims to promote independent and flexible learning for life long learners.
The Laptop Program is not compulsory and the school has a limited number of laptops available for students who do not have a personal laptop. However these machines may not be the latest model and may not be taken home.
Winthrop Australia, in consultation with the school, has prepared a Parent Funded Digital Learning Bundle which can be accessed through the Winthrop Portal on the website.
Parents of Year 4, 5 and 6 students who wish to purchase a laptop for their child may do so through Winthrop Australia’s online portal.
Parents who do not wish to purchase through Winthrop Australia are free to purchase from another supplier, however we ask that you ensure that the specifications of the laptop are as outlined on the Winthrop Australia online portal.
If you have any queries about the Laptop Program please contact the school on 9310 9133.
