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 Partnership

Please be encouraged to use our partnership with StottHoare for education pricing on business-grade notebooks plus accessory & warranty choices.
A new BYOD portal is coming soon... the current ordering process is to contact them on 08 9244 0000 (Press 1 for Sales) or email: stgeorges@stotthoare.com.au

The IT Manager recommends adding Microsoft 3 Year Warranty with Accidental Damage Protection.

Please note, StottHoare do not price match retail stores. Prices and services supplied are of a business quality assurance whereas retail stores are generally consumer grade with 1-year limited warranties.
