At the beginning of Term 4, the Kindergarten, Pre-Primary and Year 1 classes were fitted out with a “Redcat sound system”. The ‘Cat system’ enhances the learning environment by evenly distributing the sound of the teacher’s voice through the indoor learning space. Via a ‘flexi-mike’, that hangs around the teacher’s neck, the teacher’s voice is wirelessly projected to a wall mounted speaker, positioned at the rear of the class.

This brilliant learning resource allows all students, no matter where they are positioned in the room, to have the same clarity of hearing, overcoming physical barriers that may hinder listening. The teachers have been encouraged by the improved hearing and processing of information since using the system.
