Is BYOD Compulsory? 

Yes. All Year 7 students from Term 1 2017 and all Year 8-12 from Term 4 2017 will be expected to have their own Chromebook or alternative BYOD device. A large percentage of our intake will come from 1:1 laptop pubic schools and those students as well as students with pre-exisiting Windows or iOS devices at home will not be expected to purchase a Chromebook if their device is still operational. The school will make every effort to support Year 7 students who are not in a position to purchase their own Chromebook, but it is strongly recommended that your student comes to WBHS with their own device. If this is not possible we have a collection of old laptops and devices in staffrooms which are still operational and will cater for students for short periods of time.

For Year 8-12 it is an expectation that all students bring a device. As Google Classroom is rolled out through these years a device will become more important in the classroom.

What is a device? -  Any laptop, hybrid laptop or tablet which has wireless capability and a keyboard. .
