Bonus Pastor Celebrates Google Reference Status

I am thrilled to share the exciting news that Bonus Pastor Catholic College has been recognised as a Google Reference School. G Kelly (Customer success manager for Google for Education in the UK) and Lawrence Tijjani Happy2Host Education came to visit our school to observe how we are implementing Google for Education tools, and how we have transformed teaching and learning, fostering collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking in the classroom.

Our success as a Google Reference School is the result of a collaborative effort among educators, students, and support staff. With ongoing professional development and training, our teachers have embraced digital tools such as Google Classroom, Google Slides and Google Docs to create dynamic and engaging learning environments. This has enabled us to seamlessly integrate technology into our curriculum and provide students with access to a wealth of resources and opportunities for exploration and discovery.

Beyond the technology itself, our achievement as a Google Reference School underscores the transformative impact it has had on student learning outcomes. By empowering students to take ownership of their learning and become active participants in the educational process, we are preparing them for success in an increasingly digital world. Whether it's collaborating on group projects, conducting research, or presenting their findings using Google tools, our students are developing the skills and competencies they need to thrive in the 21st century.

We look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of educational technology and empowering our students to reach their full potential as lifelong learners and leaders in an ever-changing world. We are excited to continue our partnership with the Google educational community, to continue to share excellence within our community and beyond. 

Thank you to all the staff and students at Bonus Pastor whose hard work and commitment have made our school's recognition as a Google Reference School possible. Your passion for learning and embrace of innovation truly embody the spirit of our educational community.
