Drone Training

We are looking to use our drone in the Year 11 Photography course this term and started some ‘official’ training this afternoon. It was a rocky start for Laila as she navigated the controls in her first attempt at flying the drone, however, it was not long before she was flying like an experienced pilot navigating netball and basketball hoops along the way.

The first assignment for the Photography class is to capture images and footage from the beautiful Mary Immaculate Church for Fr Bernie to use on his website. Mr Johnson and Mr Burden will be overseeing the girls and will ensure all relevant safety regulations are observed.

There are many resources now available for using drones in the educational environment and we are currently exploring how we can incorporate drones into our curriculum in 2019 and beyond.
