Bring Your Own Device: BYOD Program at RRHS

Students can 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


A reminder for all students to familiarise themselves with Cybersafety while using your learning devices online at home and at school.

Please visit the NSW Department of Education “Digital Citizenship” website where you will find information on the Student use of Digital Devices and Online Services and additional resources to support you.

A new policy governing student use of digital devices and online services will apply in all NSW public schools from Term 1 week 1 2020.


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.
