Grade 5 classes also have a junior buddy grade. They work with younger students to complete fun activities related to literacy and values. During this time Grade 5 students are required to support and lead the younger students.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
Kings Park Primary School is committed to providing its students with a quality education that prepares them for their life in the 21st Century. In light of this, students at KPPS will be using a variety of different technology tools in and out of the classroom. These include Smartboards and tablets which are provided to year 5 students, with an opportunity to co-own a tablet. These portable tablets will be used as part of the student’s classroom learning for not only for specific IT skills but to enhance opportunities for learning in all areas of the curriculum.

Google Classroom
Students will have the opportunity to collaboratively communicate with their teacher and peers using a safe, intuitive and friendly online Google Classroom program which is an environment designed to engage and educate the next generation of learners. Students will be able to showcase select pieces of their work on Google Classroom, interact with one another (at school and at home) and contribute to class tasks and online activities. Students are able to access Google Classroom at home and are encouraged to share their learning with their families.

Cyber Safety
Keeping students safe online is extremely important to KPPS. Students will participate in an ongoing web safety program where aspects of web safety will be covered. This program aims to give children, and their parents and carers, sound advice on how best to manage online risks, so their internet experiences are safe and positive.
