BYO iPad Program Update 2018

As you would be aware Craigburn Primary School launched a voluntary BYO iPad program for students in Years 2 – 7 in early 2016. Throughout the program we have experienced many successes while also finding some challenges along the way.

There are currently over 250 students (Years 2-7) who have taken up the program and whose families have participated in parent information / induction sessions.

We have recently updated our BYO iPad Program for 2018 (click here) and are continuing to the implement the program across Years 2 – 7.
