Learning with Digital Devices and Online Services

At Georges River College Hurstville Boys Campus we are committed to producing outstanding educational outcomes for every student.

We support each boy to become a confident, enthusiastic, independent learner who is skilled in literacy, numeracy, critical thinking, evaluation and problem-solving. Our learning community thrives on helping each other to learn and we engage in many collaborative learning activities.

Digital literacy is critical to a boy’s confident and effective learning across all of his subject areas. It fosters and develops the deep learning that a boy will need beyond school in the world of further education and working life.

At GRC Hurtsville Boys Campus teachers integrate their learning with digital devices and online services. The Campus website provides a list of recommended digital devices that will work with the school’s online services. We will also provide a portal for the purchase and maintenance of every boy’s digital device. Students and their parents / caregivers must sign this document in order to access online services at the school.
