Where can you buy the correct device?


Parents are welcome to purchase devices anywhere. There is no preferred platform at Moorebank High School. Parents should purchase a device that suits their child's needs and family circumstances.


HP Education and  Apple store have created a Parent BYOD Purchasing Portal which gives parents options and a small list of devices ranging in price that have been chosen by the Technology Committee as suitable for our learning environments. This is not managed in any way by the school, rather a suggestion for purchasing options.


What if you don't have a device?


Students who do not have devices will be able to take out a 'Day Loan' from the school.


Access the form, before 8.30am to request a laptop. Students will need to pick up laptops from the Network room (next to CAPA staffroom) before the start of school day bell and return before the final bell each day.


Loaning of school laptops should be seen as only a temporary measure. If your family is having specific trouble purchasing a device, you should contact the school via email to discuss options.
