BYOD - Bring Your Own Devices

2018 is the last year that we are having BYOD devices at school, as we are moving to school owned Chrome books.

All students in the Senior School (Year 5 and 6) are able to bring a tablet type device (android tablet, iPod touch, or iPad) to use as a learning tool in the classroom to support their learning. This is not compulsory.

Please note if you are Year 5 you will not be able to continue to bring a device next year in Year 6.
