Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Since the dissolution of the federally funded DER laptop program, Cheltenham Girls' High School has adopted a Bring Your Own Device Policy (BYOD) for all year groups. Each day it is expected that all students bring an appropriate device that is fully charged and able to perform to the demands of their coursework.

Mobile Phones are not considered appropriate student learning devices and are not to be used as such.

Minimum Device Specifications

Cheltenham Girls' High School provides students and parents a guide on the recommended minimum specifications for choosing a student device. The guide is reviewed frequently, taking into account changes in technology and subject requirements.

Please check back before considering purchasing a device for your child as the recommended requirements may have changed since the last time you visited this page. 

The Minimum Device Specifications can be found here:

Other important things to consider when choosing a device include:

  • Will this device suit my child's needs over the next few years?
  • Will this device connect to 5GHz Wi-Fi?

  • Will this device last the whole school day without re-charging?
  • Is this device light and portable?
