About the program

Normanhurst Boys High School has a well developed BYOD program.

This program requires students to bring their own laptops to school for use in class. All students are expected to have their own device and bring it to school each day (except on Wednesdays due to sport).

The device should be a productivity device (laptop or laptop/tablet hybrid) and not consumption based (e.g. iPad or Android tablets).

Acceptable use

All use of BYO devices is subject to acceptable use as explained in the following documents:

  • BYOD Policy
  • BYOD User Agreement

The policy, user agreement and other associate documents are stored and will be updated in this folder.
