Students are expected to bring a digital device suitable for the purposes of learning to school. It is preferable that students bring a laptop. The use of such devices in the classroom is at the discretion of the teacher. We do not condone the use of such devices outside this authorisation.

The minimum specification for a laptop is:

  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB eMMC or SSD drive
  • 11.6" or larger

Noel Leeming has provided the following BYOD devices which are suitable:

Online retailer PB Tech also offer a range of affordable BYOD options

Harvey Norman also carries a range of BYOD options

The purchasing of devices beyond the minimum specification is at the discretion of parents/caregivers.

At Feilding High School, we use Microsoft Office 365 as our Learning Management Sytem and medium for Blended learning. Our Students have access to Office 365 ProPlus for free, which includes: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and OneDrive (which provides 1TB of cloud storage). Office 365 ProPlus also provides students the ability to install this productivity suite on up to 5 devices.

Students can access the Microsoft 365 Apps by logging on to the office website using their school e-mail address and password - the format for the student e-mail is [email protected] e.g [email protected]

NOTE: Apple laptops like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro can also be used at school with the Office 365 suite but far exceed our minimum specifications.
