Technology is an integral part of school life at Mother Teresa School from ELC through to Year 6.


In Years 5 and 6 teaching and learning involves a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) iPad program. Students bring an iPad from home to assist them with their learning each day. 

Please see the link outlining Device Requirements. (updated Oct 2018)

If you are considering purchasing an iPad we are now offering an additional purchasing option, directly through Apple to assist families (click the Apple Store Canberra link below). You can also still visit an Apple store if you wish. Please mention the school BYOD program when purchasing. Finance options are available for purchases from an Apple store or online. And you can visit www.apple.com/au/recycling to find out if your existing iPad, iPhone or smartphone qualifies to be traded in for a gift card. Or visit an Apple Store and if your device qualifies, get credit towards a new one.
