Stationery Purchase
In Term 4 each year we send out stationery lists for the following year. For students in Years 5-8, the stationery list will include a suggested BYOD device for families who are new to the BYOD programme. This is an excellent option for families who wish to purchase a device but don't know where to start. Families are also welcome to purchase an alternative device. Please make sure it meets the requirements above, if this is the case.
