ICT Newsletters

Welcome to 2015.  At this stage, as the NSW DEC School ICT Support structure is finalised and implements, it is unlikely that these weekly ICT newsletters can continue.  All past issues will remain here for future reference needs.  We anticipate some very positive changes this year with announcements coming soon.

To help ICT Coordinators stay informed, we produced a quick, easy to read weekly newsletter (during school term) that you can share with your staff.  This webpage will contain links to each PDF newsletter and all ICT Coordinators who have registered with us will receive an email as soon as each new one is published.  

Any feedback you might have about our newsletters is great.  Just email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - also, if you have any great ICT stories happening at your school, we'd love to share them.
