Technology & BYOD
We believe technology is a vital element in the modern learning process. Therefore we provide facilities for students to engage in technology in a safe, contemporary learning environment.
All classrooms at St Patrick’s College Townsville are technology-driven. The entire campus, including the central Mercy Courtyard is Wi-Fi connected. The Mercy Courtyard features several huts with powering stations where students can recharge their devices during breaks.
Teachers often use the outdoor areas for small breakout lessons or workshops. At St Patrick’s College Townsville we believe that students will learn in any environment in which they feel comfortable. We therefore take full advantage of our beach side location and beautiful outdoor areas by using these as additional learning spaces where appropriate.
The College has a compulsory Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in order to further empower students to take control of how they use technology in their learning. These devices will be used in classrooms to support student learning. Students are required to sign an ICT Agreement that sets out how the device can be used at school. IT Support staff will be available to provide assistance so that students are able to connect to the College network and access the required free software for the device. However, the College does not manage, support, own or provide warranty for the device.
The device must meet the following specifications:

Acknowledgement of Country: We give thanks and respectfully acknowledge the Gurrumbilbarra Wulgurukaba people, the Traditional Custodians of this beautiful country whose land our College shares. We recognise their ongoing deep spiritual connection to this Country, and the care they gave for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the Bindal people as the neighbouring Custodians of their Country. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and emerging and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.
