As a school, we have decided to provide two laptop programs for students to participate in to enable a true, equitable 1 to 1 learning experience. The two programs that Gin Gin State High School offer are the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program and the Laptop Hire Program, where students hire a school owned laptop for educational use at school and at home.
The Laptop Hire Program is only available to students enrolled in Year 7, 8 , 9 and 10 in 2021 at this stage.
All laptops used in this program are assigned to each individual student and will come standard with the schools Managed Operating Environment (Windows 10 for Education), filtered internet, access to the school network and access to school software.
Our school P&C has endorsed a co-contribution of $200 to be charged per device per annum (pro-rata based on enrolment) for the device hire. By paying the $200 fee students are guaranteed their own laptop for the school year (except over the Christmas holiday period).
How to apply for a Take Home Hire Laptop
Students must download and read the Laptop Hire Charter
and return the attached Agreement Form
with their annual hire payment. The IT department will then build their personal laptop and advise them on daily notices when it is ready for collection. Please note that there will be approximately 1 week wait
between the form submission (with payment) and the student receiving the laptop (time of year dependent). Students will need to check daily notices
to find out when their device is ready for collection.
Please advise the IT Department of all warranty issues, accidental damage, theft or loss as soon as the incident occurs. The school will then contact the vendor to resolve the relevant issues, and your child will be provided with a day-loan laptop (subject to availability) for the duration of the repair.
