Cutting Edge Infrastructure‚Äč and Resources


Pimpama State School has invested heavily in WiFi and digital infrastructure to ensure students have the best possible access to digital learning. Our students currently have access to:

  • high definition, interactive teaching panels in every teaching space;

  • high bandwidth WiFi in all learning areas;

  • computer labs, which students visit at least once a week;

  • STEM and coding labs, which students visit at least once a week; and

  • school iPads (Prep to Year 3) and Laptops (Year 4 to Year 6) for students who do not bring their own device.

 

Our students are provided the opportunity to design 3D digital environments and creations through cutting-edge 3D design software. The inclusion of 3D printers in the Lomandra STEM lab allows students to print their 3D projects and work through an iterative design process. 



Students are also able to break down the boundaries of the classroom and explore content in all learning areas using Virtual Reality headsets. The headsets allow students to travel the world without leaving the classroom, or interact with virtual environments.



Initiatives

BYO iPad and Laptop Programs

Students have the opportunity to bring an iPad (Prep to Year 3) or Laptop (Year 4 to Year 6) to school every day to support 21st century learning.

For more information, please see our Bring Your Own Device sections:

 

#qldtechschools Initiative

Since 2016, our school has led the way with implementing coding and robotics in the classroom by fast tracking the Digital Technologies curriculum from Prep to Year 6. Our model of teaching coding and robotics to all students has been showcased to surrounding schools, and continues to evolve with the ongoing changes in technology.

For more information, please see our Technologies page in the curriculum section.

 

Robotics for the Future

In 2020, we were successfully accepted to participate in the Department of Education's Robotics of the Future initiative. Students in Year 5 programmed a NAO robot as a component of their digital technologies unit.

 

NAPLAN Online

In 2018, we were one of the first schools in Australia to successfully implement NAPLAN Online. We continue to successfully conduct NAPLAN Online testing.
