Following successful trialing of iPad programs at Sandringham College and considering best practice research, the iPad will be required for all Year 8 students in 2014. 1:1 technology, such as the iPad, maximizes learning opportunities for students by providing access to information anywhere, at any time. It opens up a world of learning where tasks and activities can be tailored to an individual student’s interest and learning style.
Our elearning vision for the classroom combines traditional, instructional teaching methods with independent student research and collaborative projects. Students will develop 21st century skills by completing learning tasks in creative and innovative ways. After careful consideration of technical issues the iPad has been selected over other tablet devices.Read more
Sandringham Senior Secondary College PTF is trialling a new approach to the traditional secondhand book sale this year in an effort to reduce time and costs spent in processing books and payments.
There will be a “One Time Only “event, during which families are welcome to bring along any books they wish to sell. 2014 booklists will be available by this time, and for each purchase it is essential to ensure it is the correct version/edition/copy according to that booklist. Click here for Senior Campus booklist 2014.
The recommended price for secondhand books is approximately half of the new purchase price, rounded off as appropriate.
No refunds will be entered into and it is strictly “Buyer Beware”. Buyers have the right to compare quality of books between sellers.
Cash only will be accepted, and sellers are encouraged to have a small appropriate amount of change ready.
The entry fee for both buyers and sellers is only $2, with all proceeds going towards the PTF to raise funds to benefit your child’s education.
Come along early to get the best books!!
