What's provided, what to bring

Bring a device that you're familiar with and that can connect to the internet outside your school network.

  • A laptop is best — smartphones are not suitable.
  • If you're bringing a tablet, an external keyboard is helpful so you can have a full-screen view of websites.
  • Remember to bring a cable for charging and any necessary passwords you might need to access your device.

Morning tea and lunch are provided.
