In 2023, the mandatory BYODD (Bring Your Own Designated Device) program will extend to Years 7-10. The program requires our secondary students in Years 7-10 to own and use Chromebooks for learning. Students may use a Chromebook only, which means no Windows, Mac laptops, iPads or other tablets in Year 7-10. This helps ensure uniform learning opportunities, software delivery, duty of care and equitable access to national testing.

Students in Years 11 -12 are still permitted to bring a laptop or chromebook which fits within a boundary of specifications that make it appropriate to students’ needs and allows it to be connected to the school network. 

The process of students accessing school owned devices throughout the school day will cease in 2023, therefore students will need to bring their own device. If your child has not purchased a device from previous years, a purchase portal is available.

BYODD Chromebook Portal

St Raphael’s has partnered with JB HIFI to provide an online portal that can be used to purchase Chromebooks that are pre configured to work within the school network.

The Purchase Portal can be accessed HERE
