We strongly recommend students in Years 3-13 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. Chromebooks are ideal for most subjects as they are light, work well with Google Apps, and are cheaper and more robust than many other options. However, if you are bringing a device to school, and taking Digital subjects from Year 9 and above, we recommend a laptop (i5 processor) running Windows 8+ or 10. (a MacBook would be ok too, but more expensive) School owned desktop computers are available for use by students of Digital subjects, or you may use your own device, which you could then also use outside of school time. Most projects will include homework time. Tech staff at school can assist students with access to Google Apps under the OAS umbrella, Open Source software, and education licences 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.Look here for further guidelines for BYOD
