Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Overview for Students in Grades 9-12

BYOD facilitates personalization by allowing students to choose and configure the technology and software that best suits their learning needs and technical proficiency.

The growth of AI has changed the way students use computers as learning tools and increased the demand for personalization of their devices. As a school renowned for its commitment to individualized learning, it is essential that our technology aligns with this approach and the BYOD program provides students with a personalized approach in the use of technology to support their learning. 

Starting from the 2024/25 school year, students in Grades 9-12 are encouraged to bring their own devices to school. By August 2025, it will be an expectation for all students in these grades to bring their own devices. From August 2024, new students entering Grades 9-12 will be expected to bring their own devices for learning purposes.
