Years 8-10

In 2017, Caroline Chisholm College will be continuing with a 1:1 BYOD program for students in Year 8. The College is moving to a “Laptop First” policy supporting both Apple Macbooks and Windows compatible laptops (including convertibles) that meet the minimum specifications of the College. However, it is  NOT a mandate for Year 9 and 10 families to buy a laptop if your daughter has an existing iPad as the College will continue to support all existing iPads. Students will continue to use their devices across all classes to assist their learning, using the device as a tool to collaborate with peers and teachers, and to design, create and deliver a range of learning projects.

It is recommended that if Year 9 and 10 students are starting new with the college in 2017 or currently do not have an iPad that they buy a device that meets the minimum specifications of the College. Please download a copy of the 2017 BYOD Checklist.
