Parents

At Dubbo College, we want to support all families to ensure their child has the best possible device for learning.

If you have a device for your child, it is important to ensure it has specifications that enable learning. We have prepared a Parent Device Checklist that you can use for this purpose, or for reference when purchasing a new device.

We have listed some recommended devices on this portal for parents who choose to use this service. 

For parents who are for some reason unable to provide a device for their children, we have some support structures in place. Please read on for this process.

For those who already have a device at home, the below, downloadable flowchart below will help to make sure your child is BYOB ready.

Do Not Have a Device at Home

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. 

Families who need to organise a loan laptop for a long term basis should contact the school directly.
