In keeping with the school motto, “We strive for the best”, Mackay North State High School (MNSHS) will continue striving towards relevant engaging learning environments and experiences that meet the needs of our students in the 21st Century.  MNSHS is committed to continuing a 1-to-1 device to student ratio. That is why MNSHS will introduce Bring Your Own Device (BYOx) program for all grades. (The ‘x’ in the BYOx represents more than a personally-owned mobile device; it also includes software, applications, connectivity or carriage service.)
Students in years 7, 8 and 9 participate in the BYOx-iPad program to assist them with their studies in Junior Secondary. Students in Senior Secondary participate as well in the BYOx program. These students are able to bring an iPad, a Windows laptop or an Apple laptop to assist in their learning. (Please note: - the school does not support Android devices.)
Mackay North State High School has chosen to implement a BYOx model because:
·     Federal Government funding has not been continued so BYOx ensures a continuation of the 1-to-1 device to student ratio laptop program and enables seamless movement between school, work, home and play.
  • Our BYOx program will assist students to improve their learning outcomes in a  contemporary educational setting.
  • Assist students to become responsible digital citizens that will prepare them for their future studies and careers.
