Principal's Update

Thursday 15th October 2020

Kia ora,

It has been brought to our attention that the message sent out yesterday regarding the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) meeting stated that the meeting is today at 5:30 pm. Unfortunately this was an error as we held the meeting last night. If you would like information regarding our BYOD programme or have any questions, please pop into the office and I'll help you out. Please find attached to this notice a flyer that was given out to parents/caregivers last night. Additional information will be coming out in our weekly newsletters as well. Please see a few vital points that were presented last night listed below:

  • We are highly recommending the use of BYOD in our senior three classes (Rooms 1-3) from 2021 onwards
  • An Apple iPad is our preferred device as it works with our system and provides our students with a wide range of learning opportunities
  • The school will pay for the apps needed in class and an iPad cover which includes a keyboard
  • The devices are able to be safely stored at school during the week and for the whole term if you would like them to stay at school

Ngå mihi nui
