Trinity Grammar School has taken an open approach to the use of devices in the Senior School classroom in line with a student centred delivery of curriculum.  This means that the same task may be accomplished by different students using different software and different features on their devices.

The key criteria for your decision to purchase a device needs to be based on what you feel you and your son can support and make best use of at home.  In addition, we encourage you to investigate and purchase through any reputable provider in the marketplace.
