The ICT Department is unique at ISH in that it delivers lessons to students in the school from P3 through to Grade 10.
We have two state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with iMac computers and interactive whiteboards. These are teaching rooms where the students take their lessons and research and work in their free time.
In Grades 6, 7 and 8 we aim to develop skills and understanding of ICT that can be of benefit across the whole school curriculum. Project work where possible is integrated with other subjects. At all times students are encouraged to produce well-presented and creative work using the many ICT tools available to them.
Grade 9 and 10 students learn graphic design, photography, print and layout design and production. They also learn how to program apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Grade 10 students are responsible for the design and production of the Yearbook.
Computer activities in the Junior School are designed to supplement classroom activities. Each class is scheduled in the computer room for one 40-minute session per week. This lesson is planned jointly with the class teacher so as to integrate the ICT skills taught with the classroom curriculum. Each Junior School classroom also contains several computers, enabling students to continue their work outside lab time. During the ICT lesson students are introduced to a wide variety of software on both Mac and Windows platforms.
