BYO iPad

Learning evolved

Highly engaging and powerful learning experiences are what motivate us to get out of bed in the morning. Our teachers are passionate about, you guessed it, teaching. And we are really excited about the changes we are putting in place for our future students. From 2020, all Year 7 cohorts will commence high school with a BYO iPad. 

We've been working on our BYO iPad program since early 2018 and in that time we have developed partnerships with T4L, Apple Education and EducomIT. We've engaged our staff in many ours of professional learning, consulted with community, visited other schools accross Australia to see what they are doing and engaged Apple Professional Learning specialist to works with our teachers and students. 

We've seen notable improvements in a number of data points for our iPad students. Improved attendance, lower behaviour issues and improved academic results. Our parents are saying that their child has been coming home and talking about their learning and showing them what they have been doing. 

At LHS, the iPad is the next calculator, only far more powerful!

We know that buying an iPad for your child is a significant investment and will generate concerns around cybersafety. That's why we have taken a number of years to get to this point. So that we could build the support, infrastructure and teacher expertise to ensure that the next evolution of learning at Leumeah High School will be a successful and powerful learning experience for your child. 

We will host information seminars for our community for students enrolling into year 7 as well as providing opportunities for parents to develop their skills and knowledge around cybersafety and screen time. 

We are really excited about the future of learning at Leumeah High School and we want you to be as well. If you have any concerns please contact the school on       02 4625 7755 and we will be happy to help. 

Please see below for when students at Leumeah High School will be expected to have a device and click here to see our Getting iPad Ready page for information about what device to get and how to set it up.
