BYOL refers to students bringing a personally owned and school-approved
laptop to school for the purpose of learning. Parents/carers are asked to
provide a laptop that the students can bring to school every day.
Teachers utilise laptops in the classroom and the school provides the
ability for laptops to connect to the internet.

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 laptop 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.
