NAPLAN Online Pilot School
Hilliard SS was scheduled to PILOT NAPLAN Online in 2017 however all Australian states have chosen not to undertake NAPLAN Online in 2017. This means that Hilliard SS will PILOT NAPLAN Online in 2018.
 
In Term 3, 2016 and Term 1, 2017, students in selected classes in Year 3 and 5 engaged in NAPLAN Online on their iPads. 100% of these students expressed both confidence and satisfaction with the online system. Hilliard SS is confident that our students will be well prepared for NAPLAN Online in 2018.
iMake@HilliardSS STEAM Centre
Hilliard SS was successfull in applying for an Australian Government, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Maker Projects Grant. We have used the Grant to further enhance our STEAM Centre and Technologies Teacher learning spaces, both available to all classes in the school.
 
App Development Club
A new App Development Club began at Hilliard SS in Term 4, 2016. In this club, students used Swift Playgrounds on their iPad to learn coding. Students in Years 3, 4 & 5 were welcome to participate every Wednesday in the Learning Centre with Mr Meijboom and Miss Cowan.
 
REQUIRED APPS FOR STUDENTS
 
As part of the required apps list, we require parent consent for access to a very small number of these apps. A Third Party Consent Form will come home with your child at the beginning of the year.

Concept Development and Charter
In 2014, we began 9 BYO iPad classes across every year level at Hilliard SS. Due to the highly successful progress of our initiative , and demand from our community, we expanded to 19 BYO iPad classes in 2015.

From 2016, every student at Hilliard SS had the opportunity to bring their own iPad to school to support them with their learning and over 95% of students have taken this up. Further information can be found in the Hilliard SS iPad Program Charter 2018 including the Student Participation Agreement.
