As part of a modern education that incorporates technology into classrooms, students are required to bring a laptop to school. The laptop can be sourced independently or through our recommended reseller following the eCommerce link below.
Due to the many advantages outlined in 2022 BYOD - Parent Information it is recommended that parents purchase laptops through our reseller, DELL for our popular device options, and CompNow for Apple Mac devices. We have put together a Procuring and Setup Guide for how to prepare your child's device for the beginning of the school year. In Term 4 we will notify our community of appointments available with our school technicians to assist in device setup.
Potential wait times for delivery of devices made through the DELL BYOD Portal has resulted in advising our community to order prior to August 31st, 2021. This to ensure arrival of the device for the beginning of the 2022 School Year.
CompNow has current stock, so you could consider deferring your purchase of the device to later in the year for Apple products, however this advice is given with caution as stocks may not last.
‘Apple’s current position in terms of stock availability is good. Our St Mary’s portal has been updated with our new low pricing for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with AppleCare +.' - CompNow
