Mel Maria offers a contemporary and technologically rich learning environment. Interactive white boards adorn all classrooms. Teachers also utilise smart and apple TV’s. All students from Pre Kindy to Year 6 have access to class sets of iPads. Year 3 - 6 are involved in a 1 to 1 Apple iPad program which the school has been running successfully for a number of years.
Mel Maria is a leader in primary robotics. With the generosity of the P & F we have been able to increase the robotic equipment within the school. All students in Years 3 – 6 have a robotics component to their technology lessons. Hands-on robotics is a natural futuristic part of classroom learning. The program helps develop problem-solving, logical thinking, teamwork and has various mathematical applications.
Our Gifted and Talented program students have achieved outstanding results in State and National Robocup competitions over a number of years.
All staff use SEQTA for class attendance, informing parents of classroom activities and reporting. We ha
ve installed SEQTA Kiosk in both campuses' administration with new iPads to make parent collection/check in of their child easier.
