Laptop Program

Ocean View College B-12 is committed to supporting teaching and learning for all Year 7 – 12 students by providing access to computers and technology.

24/7 access to laptops enables students to engage with the school’s eLearning environment and other technologies that are increasingly becoming an integral part of working life.

We are offering a subsidised Laptop Program to those students commencing in both Year 7 & Year 8 at Ocean View College in 2021. Students participating in the Laptop Program will have exclusive possession of an individual wireless laptop which will connect to the school’s networked resources. Students may use these laptops at school and at home.  This will provide email and internet access to school resources, Daymap,  up-to-date software, secure data and file storage and printing services supported by the IT Dept.

Please consider the following options:

Option 1

Students receive a school laptop for their personal use, 7 days a week. They will be able to use the computer at school and at home.***  It will be covered by the manufacturer’s next day on-site warranty for three years for issues included in warranty;  configured by the school with the latest software and supported by our IT dept.

Payment Options:

  • A one-off payment of $400.00 inc gst. (The full cost of the device is $744.70 inc GST with $344.70 subsidised by the school.)
  • A two-part payment of $200.00 inc gst. Debit Card details are a requirement for the second payment
  • 2 year payment plan by a formal direct debit agreement, with a minimum payment of $20.00 per month commencing in February 2021.

Formal ownership of the device remains with the school which allows for the deployment of the DfE (Department for Education) licenced software on the device; ownership passes to the student upon leaving Year 12; as long as $400.00 inc gst has been paid.  Students who leave Ocean View College before the end of their secondary schooling must return the laptop, in good condition, to the school.

Students selecting these options will have exclusive use of the laptop, plus bundled software until the end of their secondary schooling at Ocean View College, unless another offer becomes available.

A three year, onsite professional hardware warranty is included (normally priced at over $200).

Accidental Damage Insurance will need to be arranged independently.

Accidental Damage Insurance Policy is the responsibility of the parents, for cover of repair or replacement for all accidental damage or theft (involving forcible entry or break-in), including spillage of liquids. Parents will be financially liable for cost of repair/replacement if lost/stolen or damaged beyond repair if no insurance is in place.

Option 2

Students who choose not to participate in the Student Laptop Program will be able to access a Netbook or laptop computer from the school when needed.  *** These Netbooks/laptops will not be available for take home borrowing, and students will not be able to personalise these in anyway.

An Acceptable Use Agreement signed by parents and students will outline care and management responsibilities.

While participation in the Student Laptop Program is voluntary, it will increasingly become a crucial tool to support your child’s learning. Your child will continue to have access to student computers at Ocean View College during school hours if you do not participate in the Student Laptop Program.

Students may bring their own device from home, however we are only able to provide limited IT support. We are not able to supply DfE software, Accidental Damage Insurance or onsite repairs for devices not supplied by the school.

Ocean View College is committed to being cyber-safe. Computer Use Agreements will apply to all students using the school’s ICT resources and infrastructure, both in and out of school hours.
