Grade 8 Laptop Program

Technology is an important part of  the grade 8 experience at THSS. In the 2014 – 2015 school year every grade 8 student used a laptop as  a part of their daily learning.   Technology and pedagogy have come together. We will continue to support a bring your own device format for 2015 and beyond.

 

We were able to support all students without personal laptops through a donation from  Samsung Canada as a part award received by past Principal Mr Sean Nosek. Mr. Nosek was recognized, by the Learning Partners, as one of Canada’s Most Outstanding Principal’s in 2014.
