St. Andrew’s School Computer Room is equipped with flat screen Apple iMac computers upgraded to the latest operating system. Every class visits the Computer Room once a week with each child having access to a personal computer.
The youngest students from Prep1 focus on developing mouse skills and hand-eye co-ordination while engaging in online educational games that support their class curriculum. In addition to educational games, Prep 2 classes are gradually introduced to using the keyboard and the Word processing program. From Primary 1 to Primary 5, children are taught to use Microsoft Word, Power Point and Excel. Competence in word processing, presentation and spreadsheet programs is important as their use has become prevalent in further education and in the workplace. They also begin to learn keyboarding (typing) skills. Classes engage in activities where learned skills can be applied.
