​​​​​​​​​​​​​Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a program where students bring their privately owned laptop or tablet to school and connect it to the school's network. BYOD supports the delivery of 21st Century Learning and recognises the demand for seamless movement between school and home. 

Alexandra Hills SHS has compulsory BYOD for all students:

​Years 7 - 8
​Years 9 - 12
​Laptop or IPad - Required
(Laptops are preferred)
​Laptop only - Required

Laptops have an expected lifespan of 3 - 4 years. In years 10-12, some subjects require a “premium level” laptop. Please refer to the “BYOD requirements 9-12” guide on the school website

Families with a device that is less than 4 years old are encouraged to bring it to school and see if connection can occur, before having to purchase another device. Older devices may have issues with battery life.

The school has special arrangements available for students who are not able to purchase a BYOD. Applications for special arrangements must be made to the year-level Deputy Principal or Guidance Officer

Minimum Device Requirements

​Please check the BYOD requirement guides (one the right of this page) to make sure you have a suitable learning device.

Warranty & Accidental Damage Protection

We strongly recommend that all personal electronic devices are insured against accidental damage, loss and theft. You can either include the BYOD on your home and contents insurance or contact an insurer that offers specific cover for student devices.​
