Year 7 and 8 BYOD iPad Information

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a new pathway supporting the delivery of 21st century learning. It is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students use their personally owned mobile devices to access the department’s IT network.​

Device selection

Before acquiring an iPad to use at school, parent or caregiver should be aware of the school’s requirements in terms of specifications and software. These specifications can be found in the Year 7 BYOD Handbook.​

Warranty & Accidental Damage Protection

iPads are expensive technical devices and they do break down and can be damaged, especially in the hands of teenagers. It is vital to ensure a fast turnaround for repairs when the need arises. 

We highly recommend every device is covered by a form of insurance. You may have the option of adding ADP to your home and contents insurance policy. However, be sure that it covers the device 24/7 and while away from your home.

Technical Support


The school will continue to run an IT help desk that will offer level one support for the student owned devices. However, warranty, security, insurance and maintenance will be something the parent will need to discuss with the vendor when the iPad is purchased. 

Vendor Portals


The school has been in negotiation with vendors to support parents in purchasing their BYO device.  Links to vendor information, order forms​ and portals are included in the sidebar. These are only recommendations and it is not required that parents purchase iPads through these vendors.
