BYO DEVICE

Students from Year 3 to Year 12 are required to bring their own device to school. Reception to Year 2 students have access to school-owned devices.

As part of our Digital Learning Program, students have access to high speed internet, wireless network, interactive SMART Boards, data projectors and industry specific software including Computer-Aided Design (CAD) in Technology and Adobe Creative Suite in Design.

The College continues to invest in the capacity and resilience of our ICT infrastructure to ensure that student owned devices can be safely and securely supported.

The College maintains dedicated IT suites with desktop computers for more demanding tasks such as specialist IT lessons.

The program supports the College’s aim of significantly reducing the requirement for traditional textbooks and the associated costs for parents where possible.
