Loreto is committed to providing and educational experience in tune with the technological developments of our time. We believe that no student should leave our school uncomfortable working and learning in a computer-based environment. In recent years we have expanded our I.T. infrastructure to support this philosophy. We now have three computer rooms and each classroom is equipped with a data projector while each teacher has a laptop/tablet device for use in class. We also have a secure WiFi network throughout the school, promoting active learning and research. The most dramatic development in the area of eLearning has been the replacement of textbooks with eBooks(Samsung Galaxy tablets). Currently all our junior students use these tablets which have replaced 15kg of books and opened up a range of learning opportunities. The use of computers is an integral part of our curriculum in all subject areas. 4th, 5th and 6th Years are timetabled for computer classes to prepare for internationally recognised qualifications. We have also introduced a course in computer programming, while our computer club, ‘Tech Team’, appeals to those with a special interest in computing.
