Toki Pounamu / E-Learning
Greymouth High School partners with most of our contributing primary schools in a commitment to using technology to be at the leading edge of education. This means we have agreed on some common ways we teach and your child learns, which helps your child gain a consistent experience from primary through secondary school. It also means we run a trust to support access to a computer for each student for school use – the trust is non-profit making and enables you to spread payments to a small weekly amount over three years, without interest and including insurance and extended warranty.
We have chosen to all use Chromebooks: we also all use the same ICT support (a company called Fusion). This makes the computer itself like a uniform item (no competition) and gives you consistency.
If your child’s Chromebook gets damaged or stops working properly, it can be brought to the library and will be replaced with a loan Chromebook while it is assessed and repaired. We expect loan computers to be treated with care and respect and returned when requested.
