Oakey State High School aims to deliver the Australian Curriculum; and The QCAA senior General & Applied syllabuses through a range of pedagogical practices. Information Communication Technologies (ICT) will play a significant role in the classroom as a vehicle for student learning. It is important to note that whilst a computer or other digital device is a tool for learning it is not the only tool that will be used in the classroom.

What is the Bring Your Own Device program?
Bring Your Own Device (BYOx) is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students use their privately-owned devices at school to engage with learning. BYOx allows students to bring a device that best fits their learning needs, functionality and budget.

** Apple iPads and Android tablets are not supported at all and provide supplementary experiences not conducive to educational productivity such as full featured Photoshop, Office and Graphics apps.

*** Windows 10 S is a light version of Windows 10 that does not allow installation of traditional x86 executable software. OSHS does not support this platform.

****Parents and Students should consider carefully the subjects and the technical requirements for those subjects. If you suspect your child might require a higher spec device for a specific subject, please consult the subject teacher and the BYOx coordinator to ensure you purchase an appropriate device.
