Students are able to log into the Office 365 Portal using their school account. Students will also be able to download Office 365 onto their device to use at home and at school. We also have a learning management system, Schoolbox, which will allow students and parents the ability to access and review the learning that is taking place in each subject. To find out more about Schoolbox visit https://schoolbox.com.au/what-is-schoolbox/.
Victory College would ask all parents to consider insurance. Students and parents will have full responsibility for the care and use of their personal device including any costs of repair, replacement or any modifications needed to use the device at school. Victory College does not accept responsibility for the theft or the loss of the device or parts/accessories. It is strongly recommended therefore that families ensure these devices are insured under relevant policies.
To help facilitate this, and ensure that devices are cared for appropriately the following procedures are in place:
Please note that the device does not replace the use of traditional paper and pen. The purpose of the device is to provide students with another tool to assist their learning. Students will still require the equipment outlined on the school equipment list each year.
