Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence. They use Apple technology to inspire, imagine, and impact teaching and learning schoolwide.

Parkdale Primary  is pleased to announce it has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for the 2023–2026 program term.

Parkdale was selected for this distinction based on its commitment to continuous innovation in education and using Apple products to create exemplary learning practices.

We are delighted to be recognized as an Apple Distinguished school for 2023-26, a long-term objective for us since we first rolled out one-to-one iPads for our pupils at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, our staff and children have been on a continual journey of discovery; supporting, enhancing, and extending their teaching and learning through technology. Children are engaged in and enthused by these learning opportunities and the way that the technology enables them to interact with and understand the wider-world in a meaningful, impactful way. Peter Hillier, Headteacher
