All of our students and teachers have access to the comprehensive Google for Education digital learning suite. Our innovation in this area has lead to our accreditation as the first Google Reference School in South Australia.

We have developed an online learning tools resource, which provides information and support for students and families in using our school's digital resources including:

  • Tips for how to show your learning using online apps
  • Navigating Google Classroom
  • Using Google for Education and other learning apps
  • Chromebook troubleshooting
  • Accessing learning when offline

Please visit our dedicated website: onlinelearning.mbhs.sa.edu.au

Google have also released some digital resources to help support your child's learning at home

Laptop Program

To ensure we can provide quality digital learning opportunities for all students, we are firmly committed to achieving 100% individual access to digital devices.

All students will have access to a school owned and managed laptop, which they will be able to use at school and home. This program will operate in a similar way to how we currently loan library books – students borrow a device and are responsible for its care and return at the end of the loan period. The device will remain the property of the school, managed by our IT team.

If your child already has a laptop they are intending to use for school, this is acceptable. We will still be offering a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) service.

Please carefully read the below ‘Laptop Loan Agreement’ and ‘ICT and Cyber Safety Use Agreement’, sign and send it with your child on their first day at school. This is all that is required to participate. Your child will then receive their device in 2020.

The device on offer in 2020 is a Lenovo 100e Chromebook

We are very excited that we are able to offer this program, which will allow all students access to quality 21st century digital learning.
