Bring Your Own Device

Recommended Device for Learning
Much has changed this year in terms of technology use as we adapted to home learning. This has continued as students returned to school. Teachers have increased the use of Office 365 applications particularly Microsoft Class Notebook and Microsoft Teams, and STILE remains a significant application used in the junior school. In addition, the reliability, performance and cost of laptops have made Windows 10 devices a better option for learning and therefore we recommend parents provide their child with a Windows 10 laptop.

If you are planning to purchase a new device for Year 7, we now recommend a Windows 10 device. To assist you we have a program available that will supply your child with the appropriate device through our One2One program.

If you have already invested in an iPad for your child, an iPad remain an acceptable option that will allow your child to undertake all technology-based class activities until the end of Year 9.
