BYOC: Bring Your Own Chromebook

Starting in term one, 2018, students in years 6-8 will have the option of bringing their own Chromebook to school. We have partnered with Cyclone to provide a range of Chromebook bundles which will meet our students’ needs. We encourage you to purchase through our portal.
