Our ICT Technicians are available to answer questions and to give assistance. However, if you choose to bring your own device, the school does not manage, support, own or service the device – it’s your device.
We have developed an Equity Policy to operate alongside our 1:1 Device Policy. The Equity Policy outlines a number of strategies the school may take, in consultation with you, to ensure access to 1:1 devices. If you are concerned about the costs associated with the 1:1 device program, you can apply for consideration through, email@example.com
