Albany Senior High School (ASHS) is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) school. Our BYOD program aims to improve the delivery of our curriculum using 21st century technologies and skills. The Western Australian Curriculum includes integrating the ICT General Capability across all subjects at school. Our BYOD program allows us to thoroughly address this element of the curriculum and provide our students with skills to help them succeed in their future professional and academic endeavours.
The parents and carers
Devices brought to school must meet one of the following requirements to be practical learning tools in our school environment. Students should bring devices in a suitable casing. Cases with a hard outer layer and padded inner that fit into backpacks often provide the best protection. Additionally, students must bring suitable earbuds that can be used with their devices.
Mobile phones, Chromebooks and Android tablets do not have the capabilities required to be useful in the ASHS learning environment and are unsuitable for the BYOD program.
Windows 10/11 devices - Preferred
Apple Mac laptops
Tablet Devices such as iPad and Android, and Chromebooks are not suitable for our school context.
MICROSOFT OFFICE 365
The Department of Education provides free access to Microsoft Office for ASHS students. This means you don't need to purchase it with your devices.
We will support students accessing Microsoft Office as we connect them to the school network.
