BYOD and ICT at Papanui High School

Papanui High School is now fully wireless and accesses ultra-fast broadband. We are a BYOD school and we actively encourage students to bring their own device to enhance their learning. Our teachers often use Google Classroom or Google Sites to enable our students to access their learning anytime. Many students will be familiar with this format from their primary or intermediate schools.
