Student Learning Devices
Many of our courses now integrate or require the use of an appropriate learning device.
Year 9 and 10 students are expected to bring an appropriate learning device.
Classes in Year 11-13 are encouraged to bring an appropriate learning device. It is highly desirable that students at these levels bring their device to school when requested by a teacher, so that lessons suited to the use of a digital device can progress successfully.
Recommendations for widest possible use
- Full operating system such as Windows 10
- 10” or larger screen with external keyboard
- Sufficient battery charge for 6 hours use
- A tough shell or protective covering

Our ICT for Learning Framework
Our students live in an analogue and a rapidly changing digital world and need to continue to develop the skills of Digital Citizenship. ICT For Learning opens possibilities for greater levels of personalisation, collaboration and connection to learning beyond the classroom.
Our framework for ICT Learning is based around three core elements:
Extending Learning: Connecting to learning resources beyond the classroom at any time. Visiting learning material before lessons, real-time sharing, and lesson review.
Collaboration: Working, sharing and learning with other individuals and teams within and beyond the classroom.
Self regulation and feedback: Organising and planning learning, Using learning goals and success criteria, Reviewing work based on feedback
