Background
SCHOOL

Barker College is an independent, Anglican day and boarding school for Pre-Kindergarten up to Year 12 located in the north of Sydney with a large population of more than 2,000 students.

CHALLENGES

With a plan for students to bring devices firmly in place, Keith Vallis, Director of Curriculum – ICT, had another pressing need to address: good quality content.

SOLUTION

Alongside the new BYOD program, Barker College introduced the Jacaranda Digital Bundle for Year 7 students in the 2014 school year.

OUTCOMES

Barker College is set to expand the program to Years 7-10 in 2016. NAPLAN achievement levels not only continue to meet the high standards that stakeholders expect, but grow year-over-year as well.

‘Critical for us was the ability to build and lean on a strong relationship with Jacaranda and take advantage of what they offer in terms of training and support.’
