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 accessible learning resources for our students and teachers.


When students start at Blackburn High School 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 the attached Information Booklet. 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 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 Designated Device provides:

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

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.
