I am concerned about device security?

Please Note: The school does not

  • own the device
  • support the device
  • warranty the device


If you are concerned the device is going to be broken, lost or stolen, you may wish to consider specific "Accidental Loss and Breakage" insurance for the device.

You may also consider using a device locator service. These services include the "Find my iPad" service built in to Apple iOS devices, "Prey" for Windows or "LoJack for Laptops".

Internet access on the device will be filtered at school and students will be prohibited from connecting to other networks while at school.


It is important to purchase quality products for your child to see them through their education. The Apple Store at Penrith have kindly offered a discount to the students of Bonnyrigg High School and their family.
