From the start of 2021 school year, A BYOD Apple iPad program will be introduced, then phased in over the next three years. In 2021 years 1, 4 and 5 students are strongly encouraged to bring an iPad to school as a tool to support their learning. The use of iPad technology will support our student's learning, engagement, productivity, technical capability and home school partnerships. We are very excited to be embarking on this journey with our students and we are looking forward to what we will be able to achieve.
Earlier this term, parent information sessions were held to inform parents about this program and answer any questions parents may have. We recorded this session for those who were unable to attend and the link is below.
