Computers and digital devices

Gindie State School firmly believes that our pupils, who are the citizens of tomorrow, must be computer literate, and be aware of how to use computers as tools in their day-to-day living. Each class room is equipped with computers, printers and digital cameras for student learning. Our school has a ratio of 1 computer per 2 students and a replacement plan to ensure hardware and software are updated on a yearly basis.

The school offers Internet access and children use the Internet for email and researching information. Please ensure that your child has signed the Internet agreement form (PDF, 99 KB) included in your enrolment package.

Library

Each class has the opportunity to borrow from our school library each week. All students are required to have a library bag to transport books to and from school. The school community has spent large sums of money to ensure the library is of the high standard it is today.

Children are instructed on the good care of books at school.  Your assistance at home also helps to ensure our books are cared for and last through the hands of many students.  If your child looses a book, it is his or her responsibility to try and find the book.  Books should be borrowed for a maximum of two weeks at a time, as other children may be waiting to borrow the same books. If library books are lost, the family must pay the school the cost of the book so that it can be replaced.
