Mrs. Hazel Dahwa
The Bishopslea ICT department, headed by Mrs. Hazel Dahwa, provides computer lessons from Grade 0 to Grade 7. The department boasts of a computer lab with 27 all –in-one 21.5 inch iMac computers. These are loaded with educational applications and full Internet access. Each child has access to a computer for 1 hour every week. Lessons are closely related to the curriculum taught in the classroom to reinforce what is being taught in a fun and relaxed manner.
The upper classes are taught how to use the basic Microsoft office packages (i.e. Word, Excel, Power Point and file management). Practical and written theory exams are taken at the end of the 7th year, for which pupils are awarded a certificate to provide a benchmark for high school IT training.
Elsewhere within the school, IT is being utilized through the use of iPads and or laptops on interactive projectors as teaching tools.
