The College provides a wide range of resources for the use of students including computers, scanners, digital cameras, various software titles and printers.  Students are encouraged to utilise these resources within their academic programs.  Each student is able to apply for a network account which will entitle them to their own personal reserved space on the school network

Laptop Programme

Twenty first century Laptop Programmes are part of an international move towards individualising education. Using personal digital learning technologies, these programmes aim to increase independent and self-initiated learning in students and extend their learning beyond the classroom. By engaging students in this way, students take greater pride and ownership over the knowledge they create and are encouraged to become lifelong learners.

The Apple MacBook range of laptops comes with a range of software and learning tools designed to make teaching and learning easier and more engaging. 

Students are able to use any of the current Apple MacBook range, 13” MacBook Air, 12” MacBook, 13” MacBook Pro or 13” MacBook Pro Retina with at least 256GB of storage (recommended but 128GB acceptable).

The MacBook comes as a complete hardware-software package with a range of educational applications not available with PCs and Windows Operating systems. It comes with the OS X operating system which is designed for ease of setup and use.

The benefits to the student include:

  • Access to technology anywhere in the College
  • Technology is available on or off campus at all times
  • Access to the tools they need to create information and media-rich work and share this work with their teachers and peers
