Bring Your Own Device

Students in Years 9 - 13 must bring a computing device to school to be used for educational purposes. The device chosen is up to parents to decide, however, it should be purchased with your son's education in mind. We also have some minimum specifications below.

Rosmini College's BYOD programme seeks to take education and learning to a whole new and exciting level that will both excite and stimulate students in their academic pursuits.

Our vision is to develop young men to prepare for a dynamic world by building confidence in their ability to use digital technologies in order to build curiosity and be active, connected, collaborative learners so that they are better prepared for the future.

The main purposes of this programme are as follows:

  • To provide students with the best educational tools and information available.
  • To prepare students for working in a collaborative and connected world.
  • To do the above while following best practice, and in a safe and healthy manner.

Although technology is a great educational tool, it is by no means the silver bullet of learning. As such we don't foresee students using technology all day, everyday but rather only as and when it truly supports and enhances learning.

In order to ensure that your child's devices is suited for the classroom, the device must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • A laptop with 10" Screen minimum
  • Keyboard
  • 6 hour battery life
  • Able to operate a google chrome browser and google Apps for Education
  • A Keyboard

We do not recommend iPads or Tablets as suitable devices

Further, the device must:

  • Have a case
  • Be insured*
  • Have a record of the make, model, and serial number
  • Be safe and well maintained.

*An insurance policy separate from that of your "home and contents" policy is recommended as this usually has a much lower excess.
