Clontarf Beach State High School is a school of the future where students are engaged in learning in both traditional and digital environments.
As 21st Century learners, students are required to have their own internet-enabled, wireless device that is brought to class every day in the same way that students are expected to be prepared for school by bringing exercise books and writing equipment. Classroom learning is planned on the assumption that your child has this device with them at all times.
While at school, students must connect to Education Queensland's filtered and monitored high-speed wireless network. It is expected that students also have access to the internet at home so that they may complete homework and assignment research.
Students are responsible for the good order and security of their devices at all times and this is part of learning to be a digital citizen. Clontarf Beach State High School accepts no responsibility for damage, loss or theft of electronic devices and we recommend that you consider taking out accidental damage insurance cover for these devices.
We look forward to working in partnership with parents to develop confident, creative digital thinkers.
