BYOD

BYOD Bring Your Own Device 2018
   
 
As you may have heard in the media, the federally funded Digital Education Revolution (DER) program, which provided students with a laptop, is not continuing past the end of 2015. Due to the funding being discontinued, our school has invested in robust infrastructure that will allow us to continue to provide wireless connectivity to students on a range of portable devices to support their learning through a BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) program.
 

After extensive research and consultation a BYO iPad program is offered to all students in Year 7, 8 and 9 and a BYO Laptop program is offered to all students in Year 10, 11 and 12 in 2018.
 
It is important that the devices brought by students are suitable for use at school. The BYOD booklet outlining minimum specifications, Q&A and types of devices suitable for use in the school environment will be issued to all students as well as on the school website. Please be aware that some older devices will not work on the schools 5 GHz wireless network.
 

It is an expectation that all students will have their iPad/Laptop ready with installed apps/software for the beginning of the school year.
 
We recognise that just like uniforms, supplies, and extra-curricular activities, a laptop or iPad for students represents a significant investment for families. With this in mind we have a limited number of ipads and laptops that can be hired if you are experiencing financial hardship as well as a list below of different vendors offering devices at a reduced cost.
