1to1 Program and other ICT information


IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Please read carefully

This information is relevant for families of current and new students to the school, Years 3-6 (2022). Your child will only be eligible to use an Apple 1to1 MacBook, if they're in Year 3 to 6 at the time of your child being in those grades.  We have an iPad program for Prep-2 students.

 

The government has now mandated new rules on how devices can be bought and used within schools. Seabrook Primary School is no longer able to negotiate pricing or buy devices on behalf of families. You will still be able to purchase a NEW MacBook, however through our online Apple authorised education reseller. Alternatively, you can source your own (new or used Apple MacBook, 2017 or later). Please ensure that it is in full working order. 

 

If families are sourcing a Bring Your Own MacBook (BYOM - used or new), then you MUST backup any files and sign out of iCloud before it is brought in for configuration. Existing files currently saved on any BYOM device cannot be retrieved once the device has been configured for school use.  BYOM devices can be dropped off at the front office for configuration after Monday February 14, 2022

 

Please complete the "Intent to Participate" online web form below if you are going to either buy NEW through our online education reseller, or supply your own MacBook device (BYOM - new or used). This device will be for your child to have independent use of while at Seabrook Primary School.

PLEASE NOTE

Families are responsible for backing up any personal files while the device is being managed by Seabrook Primary School. Any file loss isn't the responsibility of the school.

 

Any MacBooks purchased through our online education reseller or brought in as a BYOM device will be managed only by the school. Due to software/management licensing, this condition is mandatory. Your child cannot participate within our 1to1 Program if this condition can not be met. If your child does not participate in the 1to1 Program, then a shared classroom device will be loaned to your child(ren) for use during school times only. School allocated/shared devices can not be taken home.

MacBook 1to1 Program prices and information: Once you complete the above "Intent to Participate" online form, we will send you further information and prices.
   

Insurance information:

Education insurance is no longer available through the school. You should carefully consider adding any 1to1 MacBook device to your home and contents insurance.

 

 

Apple Warranty information:

Apple warranty is for one year only (when purchasing new) unless you opt to buy a three year AppleCare PLUS extended warranty (highly recommended). AppleCare PLUS can be purchased through our education reseller or via the Apple Australia website, but only after the first 5 day cooling off period has concluded. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO ADD APPLECARE PLUS to your childs brand new Apple MacBook Air. All devices purchased through our Education supplier should have a 3 year extended warranty and AppleCare PLUS protection (for accidental damage).

 

New government rules for all extended warranties (including AppleCare PLUS) must now include a 5 day cooling off period before you are allowed to extend a warranty. This is the case for any extended warranty.
