They are used for word processing, storing and retrieving information, for classifying and handling data and graphics as well as programming and keeping up with technology in the modern world. There is a suite of PC’s in a shared area alongside the library and easily accessed by all classes. Laptop computers and i-pads supplement these and there are also two PC’s in each classroom.
