Digital Learning News

 

Watsonia Primary School has just received spectacular news to support our learning in the Digital Investigation Space. In April Miss Noack and the ICT team of Cameron, Jobie, Jayden and Harry submitted an entry to the Victorian Teachers Mutual Bank 2017 “Teachers Initiative Program.” The initiative was to purchase new Robotics equipment called Lego Mindstorms EV3 to extend Programing skills in the grade 5/6 area. Last week we found out we were successful!

This grant is in addition to $5000 the school received after applying for a Federal Government grant which helped fund our new Interactive finger touch Whiteboard and additional resources for our Coding Room.

At our next assembly The Victorian Teachers Mutual Bank will be attending to award a $1000 cheque to our school.

Part of the program involves a popular vote so please vote for the Watsonia Primary School initiative at the link below.  http://campaigns.victeach.com.au/tip/vote.htm
