BYOD Policy

Menzies College BYOD Policy

Menzies College is giving more emphasis to its BYOD (Bring your own device) programme at the start of the 2022 school year. 
 
There is a need for all students to have better access to digital learning.  This is because of the increasing digitalization of assessments (senior school), the new digital curriculum and the need to be digitally fluent in the workforce. 
 
Students who for whatever reason do not have access to a device from home will be able to access a device from school. 
 
All further information regarding BYOD will be on this page.  The information regarding the two suppliers Menzies will be working with, Noel Lemming and Conbrio will be posted on this page. Conbrio offers refurbished devices at a lower cost compared to new devices. Information will include specials and hire purchase arrangements.
 
Menzies will provide spaces for all students to keep their devices safe. Students are encouraged to provide a protective sleeve/case for their digital devices.
