BYOD Program

At Brookside College we use digital technologies to ensure our learners are future ready.  In 2021, Year 7 students and new Year 8 & 9 students will have the opportunity to participate in a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program. Students will need to demonstrate commitment to being a responsible learner. This means meeting attendance and punctuality standards and using the device in strict accordance with the College’s ICT Acceptable Use Policy. The BYOD program provides an opportunity for our students to enter a new world of curriculum possibilities, allowing engagement and involvement in their learning.

In order to support families in making a decision regarding the appropriate device, please refer to our 2021 BYOD Program Booklet and our Acceptable User Agreement.
