2017 Enrolment Form
Bring Your Own Digital Device
These devices would be helpful but not essential to a student at Melville Intermediate. We already provide computer access to every student at school. We have 200 computers in our school which are used regularly in all classrooms. Students use Google for creating and saving files. Each student will be provided with a school email address which allows them to access and save to Google from school and elsewhere. The Google accounts of students are managed and monitored from school.
Tablets and Laptop devices can be brought to school by students once a parent and student have signed our “Bring Your Own Digital Device Agreement.” They will connect wirelessly to our school wi-fi network. Our network is able to monitor and track usage.
Please note that digital devices with 3G or 4G capability have additional conditions that need to be met by the student.
We have a simple policy about mobile phones at
school; they are not permitted unless a parent has written a note to the
Principal notifying him that they would like their child to bring a phone to
school. The phone is to be left in
the school office for the school day to ensure safe keeping.
Any student with a phone or any other digital device at school who has not provided us with a signed agreement or note from home will be required to hand in their phone or device and parents will be requested to come in and collect the phone or device from the school office at their convenience.
