Bring Your Own Device: BYOD Program at RRHS

Students can now bring their own computing device to school. BYOD has become a common practice in workplaces and educational institutions all over the globe and now in Australia many schools are adopting this strategy to meet the requirements of 21st Century learning.

This is a very positive initiative for our students, as research suggests that when students have ownership of their devices:

  • engagement in the learning increases
  • ICT skills improve
  • students become more versatile in the way they demonstrate their learning outcomes


All students with devices can see Ms Moverley (Computer Coordinator) or Mr Redden (TSO) to get assistance with connecting their device to the school wireless network. Please note that the DEC wireless network installed in high schools only operates on the 802.11n 5Ghz standard. Devices with 802.11a/b/g or 802.11n 2.4Ghz only will not be able to connect.

For instructions and guides on how to connect iPads, MacBooks, Windows 7/8/8.1 or Androids to the school wireless network go to How to Connect Devices to the School Wireless
