BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE PROGRAM
In the last couple of years, Renmark High School has made significant upgrades to our IT infrastructure, which now allows students to bring their own computers to school and access our high-speed filtered internet. While students do not have to bring a computer to school, many who do find they are more productive in class and more easily transition their work between school and home.
Which computer to purchase can be a daunting task full of questions. We have attempted to simplify the process by doing a lot of the research for you. Through partnering with Edunet we have created a purchasing portal where we have made recommendations for different levels of power and cost including both Windows and Apple devices. Through a volume purchasing agreement we are also able to provide these cheaper than through retail stores.
This portal can be found at https://renmark.technologyportal.com.au by using the access code RHS2019.
If you are getting a computer from elsewhere, please keep in mind the following suggestions:
- Screen size, 11 inch or larger.
- Battery life, needs to last the whole 6-hour school day.
- Keyboard, if writing for any length of time.
- Lightweight, generally under 1.6 kg is better.
- Insurance, is it covered for accidental damage or loss?
- Warranty, is it covered by warranty for repairs?
If you would like more help deciding which computer will work for your child, please feel free to contact us and we’ll talk you through the options.
