BYOD (Apple Device)

Sutherland Dianella PS has run a BYOD (iPad) program for many years.


Teachers are keen for students to begin accessing the Department of Education's email and portal system as soon as possible.


For parents wishing to purchase an iPad, we can offer discounted iPads from JBHiFi via a BYOD portal. See the attached document for further information.


All students in Year 3-6 are bound by an iPromise, which is included in the attachments to this notice, as is the schools BYOD information book.


iPads which come to school must be in a suitable case and will be networked by their home teacher.


Parents must take responsibility for iPad use in the home. We recommend they are always used in open spaces (not a bedroom) and that parents take the iPad at night for charging, to avoid students accessing the iPad when they should be asleep.


Should you have any further questions please email


Please see the attachments below for further information about our BYOD program
