Device Program

Each year the school reviews our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program against the needs of our girls and the curriculum. There have been some exciting changes to the program for 2021 which are outlined below. The aim of this program is to streamline the development of skills and teach ownership, responsibility and appropriate use.
