DER Laptop



At the start of 2012 all students from Years 9 through 12 will have been issued a laptop for educational use.

The laptops contain a range of software including many Microsoft and Adobe products.

Prior to being given access to a laptop students and parents are required to sign agreements designed to ensure the equipment is looked after and available for educational use.

 Key elements of the agreement are:

  • Students will bring their computer to school every day
  • Students will fully charge their computers at home each night
  • Students will make every effort to look after the equipment and will be held responsible for any avoidable damage caused to the computer.
  • Students will report the loss or theft of the device as soon as possible to the school.

 The school will assist students in this program by:

  • Providing a Technical Support Officer (TSO) to help students with all issues related to the DER program.
  • Providing training to students in the operation of software and the safe use of the computers.
  • Providing loan computers, when available, for students experiencing faults with their devices.

 The following documents provide further information about the program.
