Access to wireless technology

We provide a secure school-wide wireless network through which students can access the internet and the school’s network. Our students are able to use their school email address and log-on for secure browsing via network or wireless computers.

All computers are networked and every part of the school is connected to wireless technology allowing students and staff to use laptops anywhere in the school.

External monitors for student display and information have been installed in A Block, Library and the Canteen.

Digital Communication to Parents

Engadine High has its very own app for android and iPhone devices. In addition, we also enable parents to log on securely to obtain information about their child’s report and attendance. Mr Andrew Drayton is our Coordinator of Digital Technologies if you would like more information about this initiative.

Technology Club - 'Tech Wizards'

A team of highly talented students, with skills in technology, meet each morning before school and during Roll Call and are available to support staff and students to navigate their way around digital technology issues. We recognise that students are often the font of all knowledge when dealing with technology!
