A new school of thought at St Clare’s
St Clare’s High School
Location: Taree, NSW
Private schools carry a major responsibility, not just to students, who rely on them for life’s lessons, but to the local community, who count on them for their social role and contribute so much towards their facilities.
St Clare's High School plays a significant role in the Taree community. It was established in 1971 as a Catholic co-educational high school for students from Taree and surrounding districts. Many of its students have carved out stellar careers in business, industry and law clear evidence of St Clare’s academic excellence.
Network administrator and IT co-ordinator at St Clare’s, Phillip Carney, understands that to deliver all the needs of students, the school’s infrastructure needs to be in peak condition. He knew the school’s print facilities were not very efficient, but a generational change required a major upheaval in the school’s activities, and needed careful planning.
St Clare’s faced the following challenges:
- A disparate range of 33 printers made it difficult to track, allocate and have full visibility of costs.
- Colour printing was of poor quality and expensive to produce.
- The existing fleet had no scanning capabilities and the school had limited finishing and automated binding options.
