BYOD - Learning - Tokoroa High School
BYOD - Bring your own device
It is at this stage not compulsory for your child to have an electronic device for their learning at this school. There are, however, a fair number of students who use (mainly laptop computers) electronic devices for their learning. Such students have access to the school's WiFi network. Students who must have an electronic device are those students who do video conferencing (VC) lessons.
The school does not prescribe any specific type or make of device. What we do recommend is that the device be able to connect to the school's WiFi connection. For senior students a laptop would probably suit their needs best, whereas junior students can manage quite well with a tablet of similar device. The windows tablet comes with a keyboard which is very handy.
Every student at Tokoroa High School has a school e-mail address, which enables them to access Office 365. Office 365 allows every student five downloadable copies of the Microsoft Office package on their devices at home. You are welcome to enquire from school if you would like to know more about this licencing agreement from Microsoft.

We have an opportunity that I think some of you will be interested in. We have been given some pre pay modems that we are offering to those parents who don't have the internet at home. It is loaded with 30gb of free data when registered then it is only $15 for 30gb there after which is a fantastic price. Anyone can receive one of these modems. There is no criteria and this will enable children to be able to do school work and research from home but they do need to be in a 4G area as they will only work with 4G. If this is something you think you will be interested in or if you know of some families this will benefit, please email me back and I will send some out to you or you can pick them up from our store.
Should you be interested in applying please download the form below, complete it and take it to Noel Leeming in Tokoroa to collect your modum.
