Information and communication technology has brought profound changes to almost all aspects of our lives in recent years. It has transformed activities as basic as how we work, communicate with each other, treat illnesses, travel, shop and enjoy our leisure time. The pace of change shows no sign of slowing: indeed, the development of ICT and its applications to areas such as the integration of media, are continuing at even faster rates than heretofore. In a relatively short period of time, ICT skills have become as fundamental to living a full life as being able to  ead, write and compute.

ICT prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. Pupils use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. Every classroom at Westering High has a data projector, screen and PC in it. We have 6 interactive whiteboards and 4 visualisors in certain classrooms. Every staff member has a tablet that links to the data projector so that educational applications are a part of everyday teaching. In 2016, the grade 8’s will have tablets were they will load all their textbooks on. We are in the process of setting up a student wireless network so that students can have free wifi while at school.
