Laptop Program

In the past few years, Trafalgar High School has taken significant steps towards the attainment of a digital environment. This has included upgrades to the school network and wireless infrastructure and the implementation of the Compass System for timetabling, student management, roll marking, reporting and communication within our school community.

The changes we are making to the digital learning environment are crucial if we are to provide the appropriate learning framework for each student in our school. The demands for digital technology literacy can be found in all aspects of our lives. For young people, the demands for skills and literacy in this area of learning will only increase. The BYOD (Bring your own device) approach will ensure your child is equipped for the present and skilled appropriately for the future.

The school preference for student devices is to opt for our 'Managed BYOD' program (Option 1).  The success of our Managed BYOD program is proven by the increased uptake each year. By opting to go with the Managed BYOD program, we can ensure your child has uninterrupted access to a device throughout their years of schooling at Trafalgar High School.

This page contains information for parents, carers and students on suitable devices, our BYOD policy, purchasing options and support resources. It will continue to be updated as more information is made available.

BYOD Options

We provide multiple options for parents & carers so their child can have access to a device:

  1. Purchase a recommended device from our preferred supplier.
  2. Purchase a device that meets our minimum requirements from an independent store.
  3. Bring a suitable device from home if you already own one (must meet the minimum requirements listed below).
  4. Should none of the above options be suitable, please contact the school IT team and alternative arrangements can be made.
