We encourage students at Pimpama State School to follow their dreams and pursue a path of lifelong learning. With the fast-paced digital world we are currently living in, our students need a pathway supporting their learning in the 21st century. The digital focus in our Prep to Year 3 classes is to ensure students become confident, ethical users of technology, while building a foundational understanding of how digital technologies work.
Pimpama State School's Bring Your Own (BYO) iPad program provides your child with the opportunity to bring their own iPad to school, and engage with cutting-edge, 21st century learning. Our 1-to-1 device allows students to participate in a contemporary learning environment, which facilitates personalised access to learning 365 days of the year.
Please read the attached flyers and information below to ensure your child is ready to participate in our BYO iPad program.
BYO iPad Purchasing Guide
It is important to source an iPad which has suitable specifications to allow your child to achieve the best possible access to the BYO iPad program. The BYO iPad Purchasing Guide (PDF, 176KB) outlines a range of iPads currently available on the purchasing portals on this page. Devices are categorised into two levels of specification:
The guide also outlines recommended extras (such as carry cases and extended warranties), and optional extras.
BYO iPad Purchasing Portals
The following purchasing portals provide iPads and accessories which meet the specifications of the school. Each supplier also offers add-ons such as extended warranties and accidental damage repair. While we make every effort to ensure your child's device is looked after (both at school and at home), accidents do happen and we strongly encourage families to consider these options.
These suppliers are not affiliated with Pimpama State School. Should you find a device with similar specifications elsewhere, you are more than welcome to purchase an iPad from any supplier.
