Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is an initiative implemented at St George's Anglican Grammar School. It allows students to embrace a personalised learning experience both at school and at home using their own device. 

BYOD Specifications

All students at St George’s Anglican Grammar School must bring their own device (BYOD) that meets the specifications below. 

Android tablets, Apple iPads and Chromebooks, as their primary device, are not appropriate because the operating system is not suitable for classroom requirements. They are permitted as a secondary device to their notebook, however there will be no support provided for their secondary device. 

Please be encouraged to use our partnership with StottHoare for education pricing on business grade notebooks plus accessory & warranty choices. Please do not hesitate to email them here.
Please note, they do not price match retail stores nor do they sell Apple MacBook’s.

Please email IT Support for any information / BYOD advice / assistance etc.
