iStBarnabas is the name of our digital learning program for Year 3 – Year 7. All pupils and families have the opportunity to join the program that allows our Year 3 – Year 7 pupils to bring a mini iPad to school on a daily basis. In return for a small monthly donation school provides children registered within the scheme with a 128gb iPad Mini, a leather case and a two year insurance policy that includes accidental damage protection.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions document that will hopefully answer most your questions but do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other queries or concerns. We open the scheme each June to allow families to join our digital learning program. If you have children that join school mid-way through the academic year and you would like to join the scheme then please contact Mr Booth for more details.
Along side our iStBarnabas program we also run a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to school scheme where families that already have a tablet allow their child to bring their device to school on a daily basis. Download our home-school agreement to enable your child to bring their tablet to school.
We work very closely with the Learning Foundation who help us with the collection of parental donations. You can access the Learning Foundation’s donation portal here.
We are proud to announce that St Barnabas is one of the Learning Foundation’s Regional Champion Schools.
