As part of our commitment to future focused learning, we continue to offer the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program for all students in Years 5 and 6.

BYOD allows students to bring a personal technology device to school to use for educational purposes under the direction of a teacher. A ‘device’, for the purposes of BYOD, means a privately owned iPad.

The school connects iPads to a filtered NSW Department of Education internet service. Students will have safe, secure internet access.

BYOD has proven to be highly successful, achieving positive outcomes such as:

  • bridging the gap between school and home
  • personalised and differentiated learning utilising a variety of apps to produce quality pieces of work and adjust to learners’ needs
  • providing best teaching practice by redefining and modifying what students can do
  • giving students more autonomy with their learning and the opportunity to work collaboratively
  • building student organisational skills and sense of responsibility
  • engaging students, and
  • offering real time, effective feedback to students and to share with parents.
