2020 1-1 Laptop Program

Our parent funded 1-1 Laptop program ensures our students have the best opportunities to acquire essential skills in digital technologies and STEM for their future. We recognise and value the parents of our senior students’ commitment to their children’s education.

In 2020 the recommended device is the MacBook Air 13” as it is the more powerful and robust device to cater for the students’ needs. It is also an option to bring a late model iPad for the program. Teachers, students and the School Board all strongly recommended the MacBook as the school’s preferred device.

We partner with Winthrop Australia to obtain the best educational prices and onsite technical support. They provide a convenient and easy online portal for you to order a device for your child. If you source a device elsewhere consider the portal information to compare accurately. Visit the Winthrop Portal for more information. For security reasons you will need a passcode to access the Portal which will be in the information package that will be sent out after the first parent information forum, or if ordering earlier please contact the school for the code.

Prior to purchasing a device, please attend one of our parent information sessions for more information and discussion with our 1-1 leadership team:

The first Parent Information Forum is on Tuesday 12th November at 4-5pm. Two other sessions which contain the same information are scheduled for:

Wednesday 27th November at 5-6pm
Thursday 28th November at 4-5pm

If you can’t attend any of these sessions and would like more information please visit our website for 1-1 Program news and FAQ or contact the school.
