Welcome to the Mount Scopus BYOD Program Portal. Here you will find all the information you need regarding the program.

Year 5 and Year 6: The iPad continues to meet the needs of learners in the Primary school given the range of educationally relevant apps available, together with ready access to a camera for photography and filming. This combined with the mobility, weight and durability of iPads continues to make the iPad the appropriate learning device in the Primary school for the foreseeable future. Parents of students in Year 5 and Year 6 are required to supply an iPad or iPad Mini as standard school equipment.

NB The parents of students in Year 4, 2019, will NOT have to supply their children with an iPad. The College will provide an iPad for each Year 4 student. These will be stored and charged in each Year 4 classroom. They will not be taken home.

Years 7 to 12: Students will have the option of continuing to use an iPad as their primary learning device or bringing a Windows or Mac device.

NB From 2020 the College recommends that students in Years 7-12 use a device with a full operating system (Microsoft Windows or Mac OS) and not an iPad. Please note that this is a recommendation rather than a mandated change to the current program, and that iPads will still be listed as an acceptable device in our 2020 BYOD device requirements.

We highly recommend that new devices are purchased with a comprehensive three year warranty and a robust case.
