Devices in Secondary School

Beginning in September 2020, all Secondary students will need to bring their own device (a laptop/Chromebook) to school. We expect students to provide covers for their devices and have their own insurance for accidents. All students and parents will need to sign the E-safety agreement which is on pages 102-3 of the student planner, that they will receive on their first day of school.

We advise the following minimum and recommended specifications:
