PBC's One2One Learning Program (Year 7 & 8)
SInce 2019 all Year 7 students are issued with their own laptop computer to be used as a tool to promote better learning outcomes by providing access to teaching and learning material at school and at home. It offers parents a convenient and simple solution to their child's IT needs.
Students in the One2One Learning Program benefit from PBC's ability to take advantage of the enormous buying power of the Queensland Government. We are able to purchase high performance commercial-grade computers that are designed to survive the rigours of school environments. Each student is issued their laptop for a 3-year period. The cost of the laptop is built into the SRS Fees. At the end of the 3-year period each student has the opportunity to take full ownership of the laptop for a nominal fee. See the One2One Learning Program booklet for more details.
Laptops come complete with a comprehensive 3 year onsite warranty as well as a wide range of education apps and software. These features provide students with a reliable and secure device, giving parents confidence in providing their child with his/her own computer.

Bring Your Own Device (Years 9-12)

PBC is committed to moving students and staff forward in a contemporary learning environment. Please see Related Documents for more information on the BYOD Program.
