Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

To support the school’s innovative teaching and learning strategies, we encourage all students to bring a digital device to school to aid their learning.  Please ensure that your child's device has the following specifications: 

  • Wi-Fi capable
  • Be able to operate Google Chrome Browser and Google Apps for Education
  • Minimum 10 inch (diagonal) screen
  • 5+ hours battery life
  • Be durable

While some devices meet these specifications they are not always effective in the classroom. Over the past two years we have trialled various devices and the feedback has shown that the most effective device for our school is a Chromebook.

We do however accept other devices but encourage families to purchase a Chromebook.

We also recommend:

  • Using a protective case for the device
  • Insuring the device against loss or damage
  • Having current anti-virus software installed
