A purchasing portal has been set up with Winthrop Australia as our recommended supplier to assist parents in buying a device for the start of the academic year. Devices ordered through the Winthrop portal will be delivered to the College and setup for you prior to being collected before the beginning of the new academic year.
Purchasing through Winthrop will have the added advantage of taking part in the Device Enrolment Program (DEP) which will mean your iPad will be configured for WiFi and email, download the necessary apps and automatically setup the device for school prior to collection from the College.
If you decide not to purchase through this method you will be required to bring the device to the College during January to have it configured.
Corpus is a one-to-one iPad school and we use iPads extensively in our teaching and learning programs.
To ensure that your son or daughter is able to participate in all learning activities and install the necessary applications for their classes we strongly recommend the following package. This device also includes a hardy, well-tested case and Apple Care+ to cover you for accidents.
* iPad mini is not suitable and cellular devices are not required.
* Upgrade to iPad Pro 10.5" or iPad Pro 12.7" at parents discretion.
To ensure your device is protected we also recommend that you purchase as hard wearing case, consider a protection plan and purchase the compulsory applications. The College recommends the following:
Apple Pencil (or Stylus)
STM Dux Case
AppleCare+ - AppleCare Plus Protection Plan provides hardware coverage directly from Apple and includes up to two incidental damage coverage, each subject to a $65 service fee (see below)
$50 iTunes Gift Card - used to purchase compulsory Apps outlined below.
** Other accessories e.g. Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard can be purchased at parents discretion.
ALTERNATIVE PACKAGES & SINGULAR DEVICES
Winthrop Australia has put together bundled packages to offer considerable savings if parents purchase the device and accessories together.
