The ICT Zone
Welcome to the ICT Zone. This website has been developed to help students through their ICT course, from Year 7 up to and including Year 13. The site is still being built and developed all of the time, so if there isn't something that answers your question or a resource that you'd like, please pop back later and check what else has been added or email the webmaster!
