School network systems

    I work in a primary school of around 160 pupils.
    We have a peer-to-peer school network, i.e. no server. This means that we cannot use the network to share documents, software has to be loaded on each individual machine one at a time etc.
    I want to change this to something rather more up to date, but our technician is digging his heels in, grumbling that "it does the job". And it does the job insofar as the Internet is distributed around the school. But surely a school network should do so much more?
    What do you get out of your network that you wouldn't want to do without? What arguments can I (not an ICT specialist) use with my technician (who, obviously, is a specialist).
    Thanks for your time.
