Other Services

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Digital technology is fundamental to learning at St Pius X, assisting students within a contemporary leanring environment. It is extremely useful for supporting students as they develop skills in creativity, innovation, team work, collaboration, problem-solving, communication and information and ICT literacy.

At St Pius X, our focus is on 21st century learning, therefore, it is a requirement that all students bring a suitable device to school each day.

Specifications for devices are communicated to parents including processing speeds, operating systems and features.

If your child is planning to choose electives with a high degree of technology use in Year 11 and 12, this will impact on the device needed.

A few tips:

  • Choosing a flexi rent plan from retailers such as Harvey Norman will give you cover for loss, damage or theft and they will provide a loan device while you wait for repairs.
  • Buying outright from a retailer does not provide cover and it is difficult to purchase insurance to protect against damage.
  • Buying from an education reseller such as Learning With Technologies (LWT), offers accidental damage insurance as an option regardless of whether you buy the device outright or with finance. All products sold through LWT come installed with Windows Professional rather than Windows Home, which may be reflected in the cost of the device.
  • If you or a family member are a TAFE or university student, you can take advantage of the student discount via the Microsoft Store. You will require a valid student ID and receive a 10% discount on the retail price. Microsoft also have an accidental damage protection plan.
  • Families are also strongly encouraged to purchase device insurance and a strong and protective case. Insurance is not the responsibility of the College.
  • Please consider the weight of the device for students to carry in their bags.

What to buy:

  • A tablet or laptop device
  • Please purchase devices using the Windows operating system. Our network is set up for Windows and we cannot guarantee access for other operating systems
  • We recommend touch screens that you can write on
  • We recommend the purchase of an active stylus for writing on the screen
  • A device with at least a 10-inch screen is preferred
  • Some type of cover or protective wallet is also recommended
  • If possible, an extended warranty and accidental damage insurance is a useful addition.

Where to buy:

Parents/Carers are free to purchase devices from any vendor they choose. The school has no special arrangements with any stores, although we do offer a purchase portal through HP listed here 

All Windows devices include 3 Years Onsite Warranty support at school with the option to purchase Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) Insurance with $0 excess fee.
