We believe in giving parents some choice on which device their child uses. The following specifications guidelines ensure the device can be supported within the Duncraig SHS network. While we allow tablets a laptop integrates more effectively into our ICT workflow. Devices should comply with the minimum specs listed below:
Operating System : MAC OSX 10.8+ | iOS 8+ | Windows 10
Processor : i3 or better
RAM : 4GB (8GB preferred)
Screen Size : 12 inch or larger
Battery Life : 8 hours (recommended)
Storage : 128GB SSD or better
Wireless : 5Ghz Band Compatibility
Duncraig Senior High School strongly recommends students bring a pen enabled laptop. The pen allows them to easily annotate electronic notes, maintain hand writing skills and actively participate in lessons to embed learning. Several are available on the Winthrop portal.

You may purchase your device anywhere. However Duncraig has organised device bundles with Winthrop Australia that offer you support advantages with the device collected from the school if it needs servicing.
To purchase go directly to the Winthrop portal.
