BYOD program

VSC BYOD Program (Bring Your Own Device)

All students from Years 7 to 9 will continue to use iPads. Students in Year 10 can continue to use their iPads, but should be transitioning to Laptops for Year 11 & 12.

Senior students BYOD program

We recommend that students purchase an iPad (32Gb) or better, with Wi-Fi only. Students can use an iPad from their primary school, however it must be capable of running the latest IOS version.

For students purchasing a laptop we recommend choosing a device based on the subjects you’re currently taking. Individual preference between Mac and Windows will also be a deciding factor.

Laptop Recommendations:

  • Apple MacBook Air running latest MacOS version.
  • Windows laptop with solid state drive (SSD) running Microsoft Windows 10.

Purchasing iPad or Laptop

Families can purchase devices from any reliable source however for convenience Vermont Secondary College has entered into a partnership with JB Hi-Fi Educational Solutions.

An insurance cover option has also been provided as an optional addition, which protects the student’s device from accidental damage.
There are also various Finance Options to families. This includes a one-off upfront payment via Eftpos/BPAY/CreditCard or the option to enter into a rental agreement or 12 month interest free Credit Card Payment Plan.
