The Bring Your Own iPad (BYO iPad) program commenced in January 2014 and will continue for Years 4, 5 and 6 in 2018. Students in these year groups will be required to have their own iPad and a keyboard and bring it to and from school each day.
The lighter weight of iPads is also a distinct advantage. The level of responsibility required will benefit boys in terms of self organisation, ownership of learning and responsibility for belongings.
The iPad program for Years 4, 5 and 6 replaces the use of school owned laptops. These laptops were rolled down to other year groups to allow one-to-one access. All current classroom activities that are completed on the laptop can be reproduced on the iPad and there are numerous additional iPad applications for an educational environment that are available and some will be needed.
Please refer to the Downloads section on our Technology page for all information relating to the iPad program. In 2018, The school will use the service of a Mobile Device Management solution to install applications and set restrictions on behalf of the parents.
