An Education Designed for Girls

Technology & BYOD

Delivering a Contemporary Learning Environment

We believe technology is a vital element in the modern learning process. Therefore we provide facilities for students to engage in technology in a safe, contemporary learning environment.

All classrooms at St Patrick’s College are technology-driven. The entire campus, including the central Mercy Courtyard is Wi-Fi connected.  The Mercy Courtyard features several huts with powering stations where girls can recharge their devices during breaks. 

Teachers often use the outdoor areas for small breakout lessons or workshops. At St Patrick’s College we believe that students will learn in any environment in which they feel comfortable. We therefore take full advantage of our beach side location and beautiful outdoor areas by using these as additional learning spaces where appropriate.

The College has a compulsory ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) policy and all students are required to bring their own device to school everyday.


The device must meet the following specifications:

  • -  11 inch screen or bigger
  • -  4GB of RAM minimum, 8GB preferred
  • -  Dual Core Processor minimum, Quad Core preferred
  • -  Windows 7 or Apple OSX 10 minimum, Windows 10 preferred
  • -  Fixed Keyboard with touchpad or wireless keyboard and mouse
  • -  The device must have a word processing application, a spreadsheet application and a video editing tool 

**Note – Whilst iPads and tablet devices will work in our environment, they are not recommended due to functionality issues such as no mouse or keyboard.
