Bring Your Own Device


BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
It is an expectation that the parents of year 7 - 12 students will provide their child with a suitable device to participate in class eLearning activities and to ensure that they are fully able to engage and develop essential skills in the technology rich society we now have.
2019 BYOD Information Guide has been developed as a guide for parents and students throughout their BYOD journey at Pacific Pines State High School.
Please see our BYOD Checklist to ensure that your device is compatible.

Laptop Advice

Choosing a laptop for your child’s schooling can be a very challenging task. With a wide range of devices offered at many competetive prices, it can be difficult to know which device to buy and from whom.
Over the last 5 years it has become apparent that when students purchase consumer devices from high street retaileres the devices are significantly less robust, resulting in breakages and the students left without a functioning device often for a considerable period of time.
We believe the best solution is to purchase a Commercial device. The reason for this is that the Commercial devices are significantly more robust, they also come with Accidental Damage Protection which covers the battery and the device providing 24 hr turn around support where you can make up to 3 claims over 3years.
After much research and negotiation Pacific Pines SHS IT managers have successfully negotiated 2 fantastic deals exclusive to our school.
