St. Mary School’s Yearbook is all computer based. Two teachers help students to design the yearbook, using the computers. Students are taught to use clip art, text art and creating their own pages with different types of computer software. Having the yearbook staff working with technology rather than doing it by hand allows the students to experience page design and different types of computer applications that will help them in the real world.
