Students in Year 5-9 will use iPads as their personal learning device. Students in years 10-12 can use an iPad and/or a laptop.

Requirements:

WE RECOMMEND:

  • a WiFi iPad Air 2 64Gb

NOTE: a wifi 9.7 inch iPad Pro or iPad 10.5 inch iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil is a more powerful acceptable device.

IT SHOULD NOT:

  • have less than 32GB storage
  • be an iPad earlier than iPad Air 2 (older iPads can end up unable to update and run apps we require)
  • be enabled with an active 3G/4G connection (there is not to be a SIM card in the device when at school)

NOT RECOMMENDED:

  • iPad Minis are NOT recommended due to the size of the screen for typing.
  • The full-size iPad Pro is NOT recommended due to the cost, chance of breaking and possible cost of repair.

Insurance:

We suggest parents carefully consider arranging insurance cover for their child/ward's iPad. Many Home and Content Insurance Policies have the option to add electronic devices to guard against loss or theft while away from home. Please discuss this with your insurance company.
