Mandurah Catholic College runs a Bring Your Own Apple (BYOA) Digital Learning Device (DLD) ITC Platform for all students in Years 5 – 12.
What do I buy?
Digital Learning Devices for 2018
We are a parent funded DLD from Years 5-12 and expect all students joining the College to provide an Apple device as recommended. It is ultimately the choice of the parent to decide which Apple DLD is purchased for use within the College and the life expectancy of approximately 4 to 5 years. If you already have an Apple device you wish to use, we will be happy to offer advice as to its suitability. Please view Device FAQ’S for further information.
These recommended DLDs have been chosen for their ease of use to facilitate education, innovation and creativity. They will also complement our College’s educational network and allow our students to connect with the global community, providing the best value for money for our parents.

Where can I buy my DLD?
Purchases can be made from a number of sources. It is ultimately the parent’s decision where to buy from and how much they wish to pay.
Mandurah Catholic College aims to provide its parents with the best possible value for money. We have entered into educational supplier agreements with PRA Solutions and JB Hi-Fi to offer educational discounts, however at times other commercial outlets maybe offering greater discounts at their discretion, so it pays to shop around and be aware of sales.
