Students & Parents


Brinbeal Secondary College believes that the use of digital technologies at school allows the development of valuable skills and knowledge and prepares students to thrive in our globalised and inter-connected world. We will be operating Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. Learning at the College will be delivered with the use of notebook computers. All students will have access to IT support at school, Microsoft 365 and Adobe Creative Cloud.

All students and parents will be required to sign the Acceptable Use Agreement prior to being given access to the school network. This will be provided to families in January.

Any Windows based OR Apple laptop which meets the minimum specifications listed below will be acceptable to use at Brinbeal Secondary College. Students who have an existing device that meets the requirements below will not need to purchase a new device for 2024. Please note: tablets will not be suitable. Devices should have a separate keyboard, not solely an on-screen touch keypad.

Minimum Specifications Windows Computers:

  • Intel or AMD (2 or 4 cores) processor

  • Battery life of 7 hours to ensure it lasts the school day

  • Screen size should be at least 10 inch but 12 inch or bigger may be more comfortable when working for long periods

  • 8GB RAM minimum to enable use of Adobe Creative Cloud

  • Hard drive capacity of 256MB or higher

  • Microsoft Windows 10 or later

Minimum Specifications MacBook:

  • Any model 2020 or later

  • Battery life of 7 hours to ensure it lasts the school day

  • 8GB RAM minimum to enable use of Adobe Creative Cloud

  • Hard drive capacity of 256MB or higher

It is strongly recommended that all devices have a protective case, cover or bag.

To assist families with their IT purchasing decisions, the College, in collaboration with JB Hi-Fi, has organised a dedicated portal for families to access. The portal provides options for families that meet or exceed the specifications listed above. JB Hi-Fi also offers extra onsite (at school) warranties and accidental repair options. All orders placed through this portal will be delivered to your home address or can be collected from your nominated JB Hi-Fi store.
