BYOD - iPad Classes

Our school is proud to announce that our iPad classes will continue in 2020. The iLearn@RHSS program will consist of two classes per year level from years 1 - year 6 with 1-1 iPads.
More Information about the trial can be found in the following documents
We are excited to inform you that our Term 1 app list for our 2019 BYOD iPad program are now available.

We strongly suggest you utilise the Apple Family Sharing option and never give your Apple ID password to your child. The Family Sharing option enables you to give your child their own Apple ID under your complete control. If you have more than one child in the program you can purchase the app once and share it with the whole family. More information regarding the setup of Family Sharing can be found on Apple’s own support site:

We also have some fantastic options to help families with our BYOD program:
