Stationery for Years 1-8 can be purchased from the school office from the 22nd January. The stationery packs are a fantastic price with no mark-up added by the school. The prices are as follows:
The stationery items listed below are required by Year 9 and 10 students.
You will need to purchase any items you do not already have.
Year 11 to 13 - Until subjects are confirmed students will only need a pen and refill. On confirmation of subjects students will be advised of individual subject requirements by their teachers.
We strongly recommend students bring a device to school every day. Secure lockers for devices will be available throughout the school. Devices will be used in nearly every lesson. Phone screen sizes are too small for most in class activities.
Chromebooks are ideal for school as they are light, work well with Google Apps, and are cheaper and more robust than many other options.
However, if you taking senior Digital subjects or senior Graphics (or from Year 9, and intending continuing them into y11-13), we recommend a laptop with an i5 processor, running Windows 10. (MacBook would be ok too, but more expensive).
School owned desktop computers are available for use by students of Digital subjects up to Year 11. Having your own device (laptop or Chromebook) means you can use it at home as well as at school. Most Digital projects include homework time.
Tech staff at school can assist students with access to Google Apps under the OAS umbrella, Open Source software, and education licenses for Microsoft 365.
Digital subjects use Open Source (free) products extensively, and whenever possible.
We have school deals available from Warehouse Stationery and Noel Leeming, just mention our school.
