Current Parents

Laptops

In Junior School, students have access to laptops and iPads in their classroom.

From Year 7, every student at St Paul’s School is issued a laptop to enhance their learning.  The laptops issued to students vary depending on their year level.  For 2019, students in Years 7, 8, 10 and 11 are participating in a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) program, while students in Years 9 and 12 will continue to see out their current agreements as per the School’s laptop policy (accessible here).

Both parents/guardians and students must sign responsibility agreements before their laptops will be released.

If your child has a technical problem or loses their laptop, please visit TechZone (located in Block 2, near the Tooth building).  TechZone’s operating hours are 7:30am – 3:30pm, Monday to Friday. You can also contact TechZone via email tz@stpauls.qld.edu.au.

About the CYOD program

St Paul’s has introduced a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) laptop program, which, in 2019, is being rolled out Year 7 and 10.  The rollout will continue in 2020 with that year’s Year 7 and 10 cohorts.  Under this program, parents/students will have the option to choose either a Windows or Mac device.

The major change is that families will purchase a device up-front, rather than ‘lease’ it from the School for three years. This new arrangement will also mean that students will not be required to purchase a new machine every three years.  Parents and students may decide to replace this new laptop after only two years or keep for the entire six year period depending on the device’s hardware specifications and which subjects students are taking and which software is required on the device.
