Bringing Your Own Device to EGGS for 2018

Epsom Girls Grammar School invites all students at any level to bring their personal devices to school to integrate their learning both inside and outside of school.

In 2018 we recommend all students to bring a device with the following specifications:
  • A Laptop, Netbook, or Tablet PC (Smart PC) will provide students with a comprehensive learning tool and is ideal as an information and content creation device. (no ChromeBooks or iPads please)
  • Operating System - This device must have a full operating system either Windows or Mac OSX would be appropriate. Beware not all Tablet PC and netbooks have full operating systems, please check before you buy.
  • Internet Browser - The Google Chrome browser is necessary for our systems.
  • Common browser plugins - The device must have common browser plugins installed on it - like Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java, Adobe Shockwave and Apple Quicktime.
  • Language - The device operating system and browsers must be set to display in English.
  • Google Apps for Education – we use a customized EGGS Google Apps environment for teaching and learning. This provides students with a free Office-type environment available using the Internet.
  • Due to factors such as battery life and warranty, it will probably be necessary to purchase two devices during the 5 years at EGGS.
