Google Apps for Education
UCHSK is committed to providing a technology rich environment for our students. We understand that the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is fundamental in assisting teaching and learning in all areas of the school curriculum.
UCHSK uses the online platform Google Classroom and other associated Google Apps for Education. This suite of apps provides staff and students with access to word processing, spreadsheets and calendar applications. GAFE also provides the new student email service. This email service is hosted on our SchoolsNET domain, enabling better security and oversight. All student work accessed through GAFE saves automatically to the cloud (Internet based storage). The cloud allows staff and students to access work, class information and calendars anywhere they have Internet access. GAFE also allows for far greater collaboration among students and provides excellent opportunities for improved feedback from teaching staff.
The Education Directorate also has a licensing agreement with Microsoft. All students can download the latest version of Office Pro Plus completely free on up to 5 personal computers or devices.
