To alleviate concerns regarding the weight of school bags two options are available to First Years. Option 1 is book rental (set of books for use at home), Option 2 purchase a computer tablet and E-book licences with an additional option to also have a set of books for use at home. There is no compulsion on students to purchase a computer tablet. We do however feel that the additional resources available to students via the computer tablets warrants our making them available to our students.
The tablet which will be available for First Year students in 2017 the Samsung Tab A (Full spec at this link)
Students who currently own a tablet may download E-book licences from the respective book companies.
All students have access to school books in the classroom therefore there is no need for students to carry books to and from school.
