Young women of today can expect to have multiple careers, many of which do not even exist yet. Whatever your daughter does, technology is likely to be involved.

That is why we have made a conscious decision to remain at the forefront of information technology in education, to give our girls the learning and research skills needed to adapt to constant change.

Computer acquisitions, regular upgrades and the integration of information technologies across our curriculum are an ongoing priority, with capital expenditure on hardware and software a major budgetary item. Penrhos College staff undertake significant IT training. Technology is integrated into the curriculum to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

This is not a matter of style over substance, or technology over content. Used appropriately, technology and monitored Internet access encourage students to become:

  • Independent, life-long learners
  • Creative and critical thinkers
  • Problem-solvers
  • Cooperative and collaborative workers
  • Skilled researchers
  • Global communicators

Exposure to computer technology starts in Kindergarten. From Year 5, all girls are issued a notebook computer as part of the College-owned Notebook Program. Students also have access to specialised equipment housed in computer resource centres, the library, science laboratories, the music department and other areas of the College.

Please find below information about the Notebook Program for 2017.
