Year 7 and Year 8 iPad Information Evening

​​The iPad Mini
​We invite all parents and guardians of students in Year 7 and Year 8 in 2015 to attend an iPad Information evening. The iPad Information evening will commence at 5.15pm, Wednesday 27 August, 2014, in the Senior Centre Auditorium.

The purpose of the iPad Information evening is to provide parents and guardians of our incoming students with the eLearning platform their students will be embarking on, at Mackay North State High School in 2015. 

Mackay North SHS has been operating a 1-to1-Laptop Program for students in Years 9 to 12 since 2011. Under new legislation Government funding to support this program in schools is no longer available and all schools will begin operating in a BYOx (Bring Your Own) capacity.
What does this mean?

This means that it will no longer be the school responsibility to supply a device for your students to meet their ICT needs within the school environment. Therefore we have jointly decided that the introduction of a BYOx program in 2015 for our Year 7 and Year 8 students will meet and exceed expectations to progress an eLearning platform that will provide 21st Century learning opportunities for student from the time they enter High School. 

The iPad Information evening will provide parents and guardians with much information about the new learning environment and also provide opportunity for questions to be asked.
