BYOD is optional from Year 7 to Year 9.
This means that from 2021 all Year 7 to 9 students will have the option to bring to school and use a personal device, of any type, brand or model. They will be supported to set these devices up, provided with software and school services such as printing.
We will still be offering an iPad device in 2021 to Year 7 to 9 students if they do not bring their own device for use.
It is preferred that students have a Windows or Mac device with a minimum of 64GB hard drive, 11” screen size, 6 hour battery life and current anti-virus and security software. Devices should be in good working order and ideally be not older than 3 years. Note that the School provides licenses/access for Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote) and Adobe Creative Cloud (Premiere Pro, Adobe Audition, Photoshop, InDesign and more) to all students – it is not necessary to buy Office suite or Adobe Creative Cloud.
