St Joachim’s School is an exciting learning environment in which our students naturally take advantage of developments in technologies to personalise and expand their learning opportunities. Our teachers use technology to provide rich learning environments for students as they engage with people and resources, locally and globally. In this dynamic, connected world of communication and learning, we need to ensure such opportunities do not place the young people at St Joachim’s at risk. Many of these risks are not new and our teachers and staff are familiar with strategies and processes that maximise learning opportunities and outcomes, while minimising risk to children’s safety and wellbeing.
