2021 Computers for Students Program

Over the last decade teaching and learning has continued to move towards a digital platform allowing teachers and students to connect beyond the classroom. Warwick SHS believes that it is important to learn valuable knowledge and also the skills to help them succeed in the future.  

In order for this to occur effectively and equitably Warwick SHS has provided three possible pathways to enable students to be part of our Computers for Students program.  

1. BYOx (Bring Your Own device)

2. Warwick SHS Laptop Hire Scheme

3. Warwick SHS EQUITY Hire Scheme
