BYOD Introduction

Ballarat High School students, parents and staff communicate, collaborate and learn using relevant and modern online platforms.  These include email, edumate, Google Apps for Education, interactive digital textbooks and online video.  Ballarat High School implements a 1:1 Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in order to deliver relevant education in the 21st Century.

All of our Year 7, 8 and 9 students are required to bring an iPad as their core learning device.  Our senior students may continue to bring an iPad or prefer to transition to a Windows or MAC laptop.

We promote the importance of parents and families in ensuring the online safety and wellbeing of their children. The school runs a number of cyber-safety initiatives at various year levels, these are more effective when they are reinforced with support and guidance from home. For advice go to and click on the ‘eSafety Information’ tab.

If students, parents or carers have any further questions please feel free to contact the school on 53389000
