Fahan girls have access to state-of-the-art technology and engaging learning opportunities that allow them to make their own learning visible. Students utilise various software packages that help bring their ideas and thoughts to life. Our teaching philosophy at Fahan encourages girls to think critically and use the technology available to solve problems.
As they move through the School, the girls define simple problems and designs and implement digital solutions using algorithms that involve decision-making and user input. In the Senior years, girls are given the opportunity to experience design projects in the areas of 2D and 3D design creating magazine covers, animations, prototypes and architectural models.
The advantage of having girls from Kinder to Year 12 on one campus, is that it presents opportunities for collaborative work. Peer to peer digital literacy projects in the Early Learning Centre and Junior School are planned and implemented by Middle and Senior School students. Through this buddy system, various small ideas grow into investigations that are supported by digital technology.
Fahan has been integrating the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in a cohesive way to our girls for a long time. This integration is a natural progression from the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, which we adopt from the early years at Fahan. There is a strong emphasis on engaging children through projects and our smaller classes allow for this to happen regularly.
Fahan’s newly-constructed Digital Technology Hub is a state-of-the-art facility providing all students with access to a range of technology resources including a digital design studio, 3D printers, robotics technology, a recording studio and digital video and photography facilities. This contemporary space provides your daughter with a vast number of learning opportunities right at her doorstep.
Technology is an ever-changing area. Fahan School is committed to inspiring students to become the problem-solvers of tomorrow. Our school embraces new technologies in an ever-changing area and offers innovative and exciting technology-driven learning experiences.
