BYO Device Requirements & Vendor Discounts

Stretton State College recognises that students and their parents and caregivers would like to use the same digital devices at school and at home.

Your student must use a device that is appropriate for their current educational needs as well as their senior pathway. 

It is important to consider how and in what way a device will be used before purchase. Battery life is a good example of this, devices for students should be able to last a whole school day. A student studying Senior Graphics or Film & Television for example, may need a larger screen or more processing power. This page is designed to assist in this process.

It is essential that your student has a device with an appropriate screen size for classroom use. We have identified that devices with smaller screens are not appropriate for school use.



Vendor Discounts

Stretton does not endorse or recommend any particular brand of device but we do offer links to vendors below for devices built in education specific configurations.


Apple offers special iPad and Mac pricing for students attending our school.  This special pricing is available for purchases made at Apple Stores or via the Apple contact centre.   If you are purchasing in-store or over the phone just let the Specialist know our school’s name.

Finance options are also available for purchases if you are purchasing at an Apple Store or online.

Learning and support

The Apple Store is a great place to learn about, try and buy Apple products for education. Apple Specialists are on hand to help you and your student get to know your new Apple device, and with Personal Setup they can help get new devices up and running before you leave the store.

You and your students can join one of the daily in-store workshops to learn a new skill, and your student can get learning and creating at one of the Apple Camp or Field Trip events. Visit to find an Apple Store near you and view the schedule.

Apple can also provide support with everything related to your new Apple purchase — from using iPad to troubleshooting iTunes.  You can get support by phone, email or online chat or set up a repair or Genius Bar reservation at
