Bring Your Own Device

Bring Your Own Device

What is BYOD?

Digital technology and its use is present in all areas of the school curriculum.  Our Bring Your Own Device Program requires all students to bring a personally owned laptop or tablet to school every day for the purpose of learning.

How does BYOD work?

  • Students are free to bring any device which meets the ‘Minimum Specification Requirements’ that are set by the school. Please click here to access St Paul’s Minimum Specifications Requirements
  • The device must have the hardware and software to allow student’s full participation in all class activities
  • The school can provide assistance; however, it is still your own device and it is the student’s responsibility to keep their device safe and secure
  • If your son is not able to bring a computer to school due to financial difficulties, please contact our Business Manager
