Laptops and IT Support
St Paul’s School has a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) laptop program where families can order laptops for their children to use through our preferred supplier, Computer Alliance.
The CYOD program is available for students from Year 7 onwards and both Windows and Apple devices are available for purchase via Computer Alliance. Students in Years 4-6 have access to class-allocated laptops.
St Paul’s School offers students access to an IT help desk for hardware and software issues.
Students wishing to provide their own laptops or purchase them outside of Computer Alliance are advised to read our Frequently Asked Questions to ensure they are aware of the implications of making such a choice.

Due to unprecedented demand on the IT Department and to ensure appropriate social distancing is adhered to, technical support will not be available via walk in requests or phone calls. Rather, support will be available via the following means:
- Logging a support request ticket to the St Paul’s School IT Department by sending an email to [email protected]
- Most issues will be resolvable via remote means, however, where it is appropriate, IT may utilise technology such as Teams/Zoom if required
- If your issue is unable to be resolved by a support ticket or you have a physical problem with your device, please book a support session here.
Techzone is operational during the following times:
Term Time Hours
Monday to Friday: 8.00am to 4.00pm
School Holiday Hours

TechZone is not open on public holidays and will be closed during the mandatory school closure period in December.
