Technology (BYOD)

From 2009, the Federal Government funded the Digital Education Revolution (DER). The program was designed to provide all Year 9 to 12 students with a laptop computer for their individual use. The funding for this program ended in 2013.

Holsworthy High School will transition to a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy recommended by the Department of Education and Communities (DEC). Our school policy can be found at
