One of the key elements of the School's Strategic Plan is to continue to evolve our leadership in the integration of new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in curricular and co-curricular programs as well as in the School at large. We are continuously exploring and monitoring technological advances for new and promising applications and integrating new applications seamlessly into the curriculum and all aspects of school life.
The ICT component of our Strategic Plan has the full support of our school community – teachers, students, parents and Board members. The School administration provides leadership for innovation by spearheading ICT initiatives in the school through strategic planning and support for the implementation of initiatives.
Our students utilize ICT skills through a variety of activities explicitly written into our school curriculum and designed to deliver appropriate portions of the Provincial Curriculum in all subject areas.
At Trafalgar, we embrace the use of ICT in our curriculum and classrooms and dedicate 15% to 25% of course time to its integration. This curricular commitment is made possible by having our teachers and students equipped with laptop computers. Our purpose is to provide our students with the ICT resources to be used as tools in the development of research, communication, analysis and problem-solving skills and to equip our students with the skills necessary to compete in today’s environment.
Our parents report that their daughters grow into confident, technologically competent students who tend to extend their limits and become independent and assertive in their learning. During this process, they display a tremendous enthusiasm and love of learning.
