Return of laptops for Yrs 10-12 students
by Craig Merritt - Thursday, 19 November 2015, 8:01 AM

We require the student laptops to be returned on the following dates so they can be appropriately upgraded for software, re-imaged and given a clean and polish ready for the start of the school year 2016.

  • Year 11 students’ Mac Book Air to be returned Monday 23 November, Year 11 Blue & White and Wednesday 25 November, Year 11 Green & Red.
  • Year 10 students’ Mac Book Air to be returned on Wednesday 25 November

Prior to handing in their laptops all students must back up their data to an external USB drive such as was provided to the students using the “Time Machine” function. Failing to do so will result in loss of all their data for the next year. Students should seek assistance from their teacher with this if needed.

The Collection of Student Laptops in 2016

  • Upgraded laptops will be available for collection from the IT Help Desk from Monday 4 January during normal school hours.
