Our BYODD Program will allow our College community to acquire, share, evaluate and create digital information, achieve media and technology literacy, and maintain a safe and ethical online environment. The College has made several decisions regarding our program:

  • We will be an Apple school
  • Recommended devices are Apple Mac Air & Macbook Pro


What is a ‘bring your own designated device’ program? A BYODD program is one where a school ‘designates’ or recommends computer devices for students, in Years 5 to 12, to bring to school to access and use technology in their learning. Some key features of a BYODD program are that students provide their own technology for use in the classroom. More information on the program can be downloaded from the BYODD Information Booklet.
