BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
Students are encouraged to bring their own device to the college. While the school does not have a mandated device for students we have some recommendations to help you in choose.
- Years 7 to 12 (Not enrolled in Media Arts): Wi-Fi only iPad with 32GB of storage
- Years 7 to 12 (Enrolled in Media Arts): Apple MacBook Air or MacBook Pro
We recommend Apple devices because the college staff have been using Apple devices for some years and may be able to assist with simple problems should they arise in class without the need for your child to visit the IT Office.
You may bring other models or brands of devices including those running the Windows Operating system. We understand that not everyone is experienced using Apple products.
Students who are unable to bring their own device will not be disadvantaged. The college has MacBooks, iPads and Windows laptops available for student use at the discretion of the teacher.
We recommend that students use their device as an organisational tool and to store digital copies of their textbooks.
When purchasing a device, we encourage you to shop around and look for the best deal you can get. Please consider the need for extended warranty and accidental damage protection.
While we do not recommend one retailer over another, we have added online purchasing portals below as they offer a higher level of a discount.
