Students in Years 7 to 9 are required to bring their own iPad to School. We recommend that students have an iPad with at least 32 GB of memory. The students use iPads to read textbooks and type so full sized iPads are generally recommended over iPad minis.
In Years 10 to 12 we have a bring your own device (BYOD) policy, where students may continue to bring their iPad, or they can use their phone or laptop if they prefer. Sets of laptops are also available for student use.
All students sign a Responsible Digital User Agreement at the start of the year, which lays out the guidelines for appropriate use of these devices by members of the student body.
