Is the laptop program compulsory?
Yes. To ensure equity and a ‘level playing field’ for all students, the program is compulsory. The laptop must be brought to the College fully charged each day and taken to every class, unless instructed otherwise by class teachers. For example, it may not be required in a practical PE lesson. Students are welcome to bring additional mobile devices to the College, as long as their use complies with both the College ICT Use and mobile phone policies. However, we ask that students do not bring another device as a “substitute” to the provided Laptop Program unit as we firmly believe that the chosen device will be the best available option to complement student learning.
