Ironside State School Laptop Program

Laptop Program


Ironside's Laptop Program is in its 10th year of implementation and is highly popular with our middle school. From year 4 parents are able to purchase a laptop for their child to participate in the program.

Recent research shows that effective middle schooling programs come about when a school ethos focuses on success, student engagement and achievement; and a laptop program has been implemented on these criteria.


Participation in the laptop program will enhance your child’s potential to develop:

·as a quality producer,

·as an active investigator,

·as an effective communicator,

·as a community contributor,

·as a leader and collaborator,

·as a designer and creator

and as a reflective, self-directed learner

In Term 4 each year a parent information night is held for parents to provide detailed information on joining the program.

For more information please contact the Deputy Principal - Jennifer Bairstow on

or by ringing the front desk on 32583111 and making an appointment.
