John Paul II High School believes in preparing its students for a future where being able to appropriately and effectively use technology is essential. Our lessons are designed to include BYOD in a varying degree of ways depending on the subject and lessons being prepared so it is vital that all students have access to some sort of device for tuition.
For junior classes, in most cases, a tablet or chrome book is sufficient for lessons.
For senior classes (years 11, 12 & 13), the device should be a laptop rather than a tablet or chrome book and should have a good-sized screen.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
