BYOD Program (Year 7 - 9)

St Mary's College continuously seeks to be a leader in contemporary learning. We aim to empower students to achieve their personal best through a strong engagement with their learning by setting high expectations and providing relevant support. Our 2018 Curriculum Information documentation makes the following statement:

"Our differentiated curriculum aims to reach all learners through a variety of resources, teaching methodologies, uses of technology and through developing a sense of achievement."

The use of digital technology in education generally and the use of personal digital devices specifically should:

  • Support and enable successful independent learning. 

  • Allow students to collaborate with peers and teachers using media rich technologies. 

  • Engage students in a personal and differentiated learning journey. 

  • Provide 'Anywhere, Anytime' learning. 

  • Encourage critical thinking and problem-solving while enabling students to develop their creativity. 


What is a BYOD Program

BYOD is a program where students are able to bring a personal laptop/notebook/tablet to school to use as their primary technological device. The school can provide the ability to connect compatible devices to a filtered Internet service during normal operational hours.
