In 2020, Arnolds Creek Primary School was acknowledged as an Apple Distinguished School for our work in creating a technology-rich learning environment.
The Apple Distinguished School program is by invitation only for schools that meet the current program qualifications. In which schools must prove their eligibility in the following areas: Established one-to-one program, Faculty proficiency with iPad or Mac and Innovative use of the Apple platform.
As of October 2021, there are only 546 Apple Distinguished Schools from 34 countries. Arnolds Creek Primary School is 1 of only 48 school in Australia to become an Apple Distinguished School.
At Arnolds Creek we incorporate the 5 elements of Learning; Teamwork, Communication and Creation, Personalisation of Learning, Critical Thinking and Real-World Engagement to engage students in deeper learning experiences using technology.
From the very beginning, a clear pathway has been formed for technology to be a significant part of the teaching and learning at Arnolds Creek Primary School. Staff are provided with an iPad and/or MacBook, and Apple Pencils. All staff at Arnolds Creek Primary School have become accredited Apple Teachers and our school continues to foster this learning by working with Apple representatives as we explore innovative ways to use technology to reach a student’s full potential.
Arnolds Creek primary school is proud to continue our partnership with Apple and are excited for our staff and students to have this chance to collaborate, share and continue to learn.
