Waihi College - BYOD in Senior School
BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. Many schools are adopting this policy across their whole school. In 2021, all students in the senior school who need to use a device for their learning, should bring a device from home. This could be in the form of a chrome book, laptop or ipad but not a cell phone.
Courses that require use of a device have indicated this in their course outlines. Please check the course outlines to see the requirements for the courses you are interested in (check your emails on the 10th October). Check out the December newsletter for ideas prices of possible devices.
If you do not have or are unable to purchase a device, Waihi College will engage in a device lease contract with the student and their families to issue a device (bond required).
