We encourage all parents and carers to provide an iPad for their child/children from Yr 3 on. This gives students a powerful tool to enhance their learning and develop essential skills for their primary and secondary education.
Our school has operated Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classrooms since 2016. All students from Yr 3 – Yr 6 are invited to bring an iPad to enhance their learning.
Using BYOD classrooms is a highly effective educational approach that supports high levels of student engagement and learning for our students. The digital rich learning environment of our BYOD classrooms helps children to gain essential twenty-first century knowledge and skills. Having their own device for use at school enables students to develop the digital capabilities that they need in high school and beyond.
Children who participate in the BYOD program use a balance of approaches to their learning, making the most of digital technology and also developing the necessary non-device related skills (e.g. handwriting, mental calculations).
