Information and communications technology (ICT) policy
NSW schools are provided with a high speed, filtered Internet connection (including Wi-Fi) and email account to enable a collaborative learning environment and assist with learning outcomes. It is the purpose of the ICT policy and agreement is to ensure that the Girraween High School network and Internet services are used for educational purposes only. Should a student inadvertently access inappropriate materials, they must report the incident to their teacher immediately and agree not to download, identify or share with anyone else the source of this material.
Students and parents must read the ICT policy and agreement (PDF 193KB) carefully and sign the contract for network, internet and online communication services access and also bring your own device (BYOD). View the BYOD checklist (PDF 831KB) for more information. If the conditions within this policy are violated, access to the school's Internet services may be denied and the student subject to disciplinary action.
The Department of Education has negotiated with several software companies the ability for students to download one (1) user license for some software for BYOD. Additional software may be added from time to time.
