BYOD refers to students bringing a personally owned and school-approved
device to school for the purpose of learning. Parents/carers are asked to
provide a device that the students can bring to school every day.
Teachers utilise BYODs in the classroom and the school provides the
ability for devices to connect to the internet.
Device specifications that are recommended by the school are in the
BYOD Program Device Specifications document. This document
identifies the minimum system requirements and hardware specifications
for student devices. Please read through these specifications
carefully, taking particular note of the Wi-Fi requirements.
Programs such as the Microsoft Office Suite and Adobe software can be
downloaded for free and do not need to be purchased. Details on how to
download this software are available at the Free Software for Students page.
We recognise that, like uniforms, supplies and extracurricular
activities, a device for student use represents a significant investment
for families. However, we believe this investment is essential for your
child to learn and work successfully in our technological world.
