It is an exciting time for the use of digital technologies in education, and here at Wagaman Primary School we have incorporated technology into every classroom.
Across our school, teachers are delivering meaningful programs that provide students with current, transferable skills necessary for future success. Our students have excelled in their use of modern technologies including design and coding through our schools investment in robotic hardware such as Lego EV3s, Spheros and BeeBots.
Wagaman Primary School is committed to providing every student with opportunities to create, collaborate and problem solve through the exploration of digital technologies.
Mayuma Sustainable Garden
This small community garden began as a seedling project in 2016 and has continued to grow.
Originally developed by several school council parents and a few teachers, the garden is now becoming a flourishing focus for our school's environmental and sustainability programs, linking real life projects and problems to curriculum content and classroom activities.
The garden consists of a range of edible plants grown seasonally.
