Bring Your Own Device Y3 to Y8 & Student Wifi Network Application Process
Dear Year 3 to Year 8 Students, Parents & Whanau,
Students from Year 3 to Year 8 are strongly encouraged to bring their personal digital devices to school to support their learning. To do this they must sign a BYOD agreement. This is an agreement between YOU, YOUR PARENTS and YOUR TEACHER about the personal digital device/devices they bring to school. This agreement covers the use of any personal device and is in order of preference: - Chromebooks (recommended by Waiuku Primary School but consider Waiuku College requirement for
in the future - Chromebooks can run Office 360 online) - Laptops are officially required at Waiuku College. This can be either Mac or PC and their website has
details on specs and requirements. If your child is a Y8 then perhaps a laptop is better suited so it can be
taken into college as a Y9.
We take online safety seriously here at Waiuku Primary School. Netsafe is a website that offers ideas to help students and their parents use the internet in a positive way. It includes tips from popular digital platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Google, Microsoft, Snapchat, Instagram, Trademe and Twitter. Please visit:
Teachers will be communicating how the BYOD system will operate in their classroom at the start of this first term. Please feel free to ask them, Mrs. Holt or myself any questions.
Please see the forms below that are required for your child to bring their own device and use our schools wifi network.
