What is BYOD?
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 devices.
St George's Anglican Grammar School has worked closely with CompNow to build specially priced devices appropriate for your child's learning and relevant IT needs. Additional accessories are recommended such as a protective case or cover.
The IT department highly recommends purchasing the optional protection and insurance.
This ensures students are covered for the tools they need for secondary school at St George’s Anglican Grammar School.
The IT department staff will do everything they can to support your child, however, they also reserve the right to not support a device that doesn't at least meet the above minimum requirements.
Please note that you do not need to purchase a new device if your current BYO device meets or exceeds the minimum specifications.
All new devices must meet or exceed the minimum specifications.
The CompNow portal devices meet the School’s requirements.
Apple iPads, Android tablets & Chromebooks are not supported.
Please email IT Support for any queries or information.
On commencement at St George's, all students are given free access to software and services such as:
SEQTA - our central Learning Management System. Apps are available for Students and Parents.
Microsoft 365 - including Word, Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, Teams, OneDrive and much more.
ClickView - an online educational video library system.
Adobe Creative Cloud - including Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro and much more
Malwarebytes - anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-ransomware. (Download links can be found on SEQTA Learn)
These services are inclusive of tuition fees.
Computers are not always reliable and may fail, requiring repairs. Therefore, the student goes without a notebook for an extended period of time.
The School has a temporary computer loan program from which we offer free loan computers when required and as stock levels permit.
Parents/guardians/carers, please log in to SEQTA Engage and find more information under the "Temporary Computer Loan" heading on the Welcome page.
Resetting Multi-factor Authentication
If students need to setup MFA again because they have a different smartphone, deleted the authenticator app, changed their number or lost their device, please either use SEQTA and Direqt message a member of the IT department or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your account's MFA to be reset.
Once you have received confirmation that it has been reset, please follow these instructions on how to set up MFA for your account again.
Please note: This only works if you have previously set up your Microsoft 365 recovery method here.
