We are encouraging all students in Year 5, 6 and 7 to bring a laptop to school in 2021.

There are many benefits to a BYO Laptop Program, including: –

Access – For students with their own device, it is available to that student all day at school, so learning is not limited by availability of high demand school resources.

Engagement –We have found that all learners, including reluctant learners and those with learning difficulties benefit from the increased access that the BYO Laptop program provides.

Enrichment – A BYO Laptop program provides consistent and more up-to-date access to ICT, allowing students to view e-textbooks, videos, educational apps, online research and digital learning apps.

Integration between home and school – Students will receive free access for Office 365 and Google Apps for Education so that movement between school and home is seamless.

High School readiness – The BYO Laptop program allows students to build the necessary skills and capabilities necessary for High School.
