Information Communication Technology (ICT) is vital to our everyday lives. The primary importance of ICT lies in its power to provide a wealth of instantly-accessed learning resources for our students and teachers.


When students start at Blackburn they are encouraged to have their own Microsoft Windows compatible  device. We provide a list of preferred devices with a range of prices that are compatible with our system.  Please see Information Booklet below. All school software is supplied free of charge for these devices.
Alternatively students can bring their current device. The current device must be running Microsoft Windows 7, 8 or 10 preferably with an inbuilt camera. These devices will be supported with access to Wi Fi and printing however no software will be supplied.

Our Bring Your Own  Device Program provides:

  • Learning flexibility and access to resources as all students are automatically connected to the whole Blackburn High School network
  • Seamless access to all these resources from home and at school
  • Access to over 90 software programs, including Microsoft Office, provided by the Department of Education and Training (DET) through their eduSTAR program

Please note these services are available for devices on the School Preferred Device List only.

Devices not on the School Preferred List  will be supported with internet access and printing however parents will need to supply their own software – in particular the Microsoft Office Suite of programs.
