Our main aim is to make sure that pupils are fully computer-literate when they leave St Paulus at the end of Grade 7 and that they can navigate our digital world.
We concentrate on Mathematics, English, and perceptual programmes from Grade R – Grade 3. From Grade 4 – 7 the focus is mainly on MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, the Internet and how to do optimal research, typing programmes, photo-editing programmes like Photoshop, and, very importantly, social media and the dangers thereof (addressing digital footprints).
We integrate the school subject topics into the learning of the different programmes. From Grades 2-6 we also teach coding, using “coding mice-bots” and coding apps like Scratch.
