This year the school was once again awarded the status of Apple Distinguished School for innovation, educational excellence and leadership for its endeavours with the 1:1 laptop program and the shared model of iPad/MacBook use in the junior grades.

With the trust and support of our parent community, the teaching staff continues to embrace the whole school approach to embedding ICT into curriculum. The staff are eager to learn more and acknowledges that they are entrusted to drive the implementation of technology into their classroom practice. The school continues to host teachers and leaders from other schools as it delves deeper into successful models of seamlessly integrating ICT into daily learning.

The school also acknowledges the part played by our students. Their overwhelming enthusiasm and willingness to work harder are impressive qualities. Very few schools in Australia and across the world ever receive this award. Well done, Orana parents, staff and students.
