BYOD – Bring Your Own Device
We encourage students to Bring Your Own Device to school. Students in Primary can bring their own Chromebooks and students in Secondary can bring their own Chromebooks or Laptops to use for educational purposes. Having ongoing access to technology will help your child to develop greater independence, increase engagement, and develop skills required to thrive in the 21st Century.
If you are looking into BYOD for your child please take a look at the Chromebook Bundles available through the following companies.

*We highly recommend purchasing insurance so in the event of accidental damage/theft your child’s device can be repaired or replaced quickly and easily.
BYOD PB Technologies
Student devices will be used to access resources, complete assignments, and for personal organisation. Education activities may include researching information, producing documents, analysing data, participating in surveys, producing videos, reading e-books, creating blogs, taking notes, or scheduling events. The use of each device in the classroom is at the sole discretion of the teacher.
Safe and Secure
To maintain a safe and secure learning environment, a filtered internet connection is provided for students. Use of devices are monitored in real time and any unauthorised access can result in the device being confiscated, searched and internet privileges revoked. (Cyber Safety User Agreements)
Students are solely responsible for their device. They must bring it fully charged to school. The school is not liable for loss, damage, misuse or theft.
Resources will be provided to help students connect their device to the school network. Your child must be familiar with how to use their device. Teachers will incorporate the use of the child’s device into learning. However, they will not provide technical support.
We look forward to the educational opportunities that BYOD will bring. Participation in this initiative is voluntary. Your child will not be left out if they do not have a device. We will continue to provide access to school-owned technology.
