Junior School Device Selection

Students in Years 1 to 6 at the Junior School have two device options:

  • Option 1: An iPad recommended by the College supplied through our BYOD partner, JB Hi-Fi.
  • Option 2: An iPad you own, or purchase through an alternative supplier sourced by you.

 

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

RECEPTION

  • Reception devices are supplied by the College.

YEAR 1 TO YEAR 3

  • Current-generation iPad (Air, Air 2 or the new iPad; iPad Mini and iPad Pro are not suitable)
  • 9.7” screen only (7.9” mini or 12.9” pro screens are not suitable)
  • Minimum of 32GB storage

YEAR 4 TO YEAR 6

  • Current-generation iPad or iPad Pro (iPad Mini is not suitable)
  • 9.7” or 10.5” screens only (7.9” mini or 12.9” pro screens are not suitable)
  • Minimum of 128GB storage (greater storage is needed to meet curriculum requirements in Years 4 upwards)

Please pay particular attention to the storage space required for different year levels. The College will not support iPad devices with a screen size other than 10.5”. Larger screens are too prone to damage and smaller screens are not conducive to learning.
