The complete stationery pack apart from the Chromebook (below) - can be purchased from the school office, or individual items may also be purchased.
Chromebooks – Increasingly we are moving toward the use of devices for our learning and recording. In time, the book list will be reduced as a result of this change. The devices we are encouraging children to have are Chromebooks. We are confident about the value of these devices, and their suitability for learning in school. Purchase of a chromebook is optional
What are Chromebooks? – Chromebooks are google–related products, and look like conventional laptops – fairly light in size. They allow the user to browse the internet. At SIS the children are all given a school google user account. They can set up their own files, saving and editing information and documents as for a computer with stored memory. But with the Chromebook they will be saving to their google account which exists virtually in the “cloud” – it is not attached to any physical computer. Their files can be accessed from any internet-capable device by using their individual password. This ease of access will be beneficial for pupils, teachers and parents.
Why purchase? – We do have a number of desktop computers, and chromebooks for children in each classroom to share. Children who own their own Chromebooks (or other internet-capable device) will be more assured of their ability to access a device for learning. Children currently in Year 8 might prefer to buy a device recommended by the high school which they will attend next year. Year Seven children are recommended to buy a Chromebook.
BYOD – Yes, Bring Your Own Device (phone size is not suitable for class writing or viewing).
We do have internet agreements and rules by which all internet users must abide. Inappropriate internet access may result in access being denied for several weeks or permanently.
