BYO iPad Program

In 2018, Robertson State School will be aiming to expand its BYO iPad program to include over 95% of students.  This program is in line with our school Annual Implementation Plan and Digital Futures strategic direction.  All Students from Year 1 to Year 6 are encouraged to bring a personal iPad to school every day to assist in their learning. Students in Prep begin to bring their iPads at the beginning of Semester 2.
