iPad Program

iPad Program 2016 Years 5 and 6 – As outlined in the note sent home in July this year, we are encouraging all students in year 5 and 6 to participate in the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program again in 2016. Copies of the notice will be available at the office and we will endeavour to update the website copy ASAP. An information meeting will be held early next year.

 

Years 3 and 4- Students in year 3 and 4 will not be required to purchase a device for 1-to-1 use. However, if families already have an iPad they can use at school, or they wish to purchase one for their child, our technicians will be able to connect these to the school wireless for use in classrooms. That way students will be able to take their device home each night for continued learning and to share their work with parents/guardians. Please feel no pressure for your child to bring an iPad to school at this level. While the iPads are being used as a school tool and attached to our network, students and parents would be expected to sign an agreement about the content loaded onto the iPad, as well as being a respectful and courteous user of the web. Please feel free to ring me at the school on 5278 3100 if you have any questions, regards Kerrie Duan
