The school recommends that parents purchase the iPad (9th GEN) 10.2” Wi-Fi 64GB or 256GB (silver or space grey). Please note 64 GB is capable of storing sufficient data over time and running interconnected multimodal programs at the same time. Older versions with 32 GB or the iPad Mini are not considered adequate for school use. Devices with a SIM card or 3G/4G capabilities are not permitted as a security measure. However, these devices can be used, if the SIM card is removed whilst at school.
STM Dux Plus Duo iPad cover is considered essential to protect the device.
All other options/accessories are at your discretion.
