1:1 Laptop purchase
All students enrolling at Discovery College in Year 6 or above are required to purchase a Chromebook (or if parents wish, an Apple Macbook). This includes our current Year 5 students who will be moving into Year 6 next school year and our newly enrolled Year 6-13s.
Chromebooks can be ordered via the school. The Y5 parents receive an eNotice during Term 3 indicating how to make this purchase should they wish to purchase via the school.
