What device should you bring to school?

You should bring a device that is larger than 10", use the checklist below to guide your decision on which device to bring. The college policy on phones is away during class time.

What things should you look for in a device for learning?

  • Laptop or a 2 in 1 device, ipad or chromebook
  • Battery Life of 6+ hours.
  • Light weight, under 1.5 kg
  • 10" or larger screen.
  • Dual Band Wi-Fi with a/g/b/n.
  • Current Operating System
  • Antivirus protection

Where can you buy the correct device?

Parents are welcome to purchase devices anywhere. There is no preferred platform at Dubbo College. Parents should purchase a device that suits their child's needs and family circumstances.

We have created a Parent BYOD Purchasing Portal which gives parents options and a small list of devices ranging in price that have been chosen by the College as suitable for our learning environments. This is not managed in any way by the college, rather a suggestion for purchasing options.

** Due to COVID-19 there may be delays in purchasing via the Purchasing Portal **


What if you don't have a device?

Students who do not have devices should discuss options with the school.  There is limited access to school owned PCs and these may be made available to students for use at school (only).

Loaning of school laptops should be seen as only a temporary measure. If your family is having specific trouble purchasing a device, you should contact the school via email to discuss options.
