Online Purchasing Portal – https://wssc.orderportal.com.au/

Wodonga Senior Secondary College has a strong curriculum based around the use of Mobile Learning Devices. The school is committed to every student having access to a notebook computer.  WSSC recongises that handwriting is an important skill, as such our recommended device for students in 2022 includes an active pen to provide greater natural interaction with digital learning programs.

We have partnered with Learning with Technology to provide Notebook Purchase portal for all students attending Wodonga Senior Secondary college in 2022. Through this partnership we have negotiated prices and formed an endorsed list of BYOD devices to suit our curriculum.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Notebook should I select?

We recommend the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Touch screen – Core i5, 8GB, 256GB. This device is the best option for all students. Although there is a cheaper device as an option, this doesn’t have a touch screen, active pen, has a slower processor and limited screen resolution. This cheaper option should only be considered after discussion with the schools ICT team.

The High end device is a good option for students studying Multimedia or Game development subjects. Its the same device as our recommended option, but with additional memory and storage.

What financial support can the school offer?

We have worked with LWT to provide 2 different 12 months interest free purchase options.

In addition to the 12 month interest-free options, we have established a support fund to provide a discount voucher to families with a Health Card card. There is limited funding available, so this is a first in first served arrangement, we recommend families contact the school as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

For any family that is experiencing significate financial hardship, we have other support mechanisms in place, please contact Belinda Telford in the main school office for assistance in this area.

What are the benefits of the WSSC managed BYOD program

  • Students will have access to all software required for study at WSSC – this enables a teacher to confidently arrange a lesson knowing students will have the required programs.
  • Downtime due to damage and repairs will be significantly reduced – Comprehensive Warranty and options for Accidental Damage cover for three years.
  • Automatic backups of all school related work.
  • Support for all hardware or software issues through the WSSC ICT Team

What support will the College provide?

We will provide onsite support technicians to troubleshoot and resolve any hardware or software issues that might occur with your notebook. In addition we will provide students with access to all software required to study at the college.

The WSSC IT team are available during most school holiday periods to ensure you will always have access support for any computer issues.

We strongly recommend that you take up the Accidental Damage Protection on your notebook. This ensures that damage cause throughout your three years at the college can be repaired for $0. The College accepts no responsibility for damage or loss and cannot enforce payment from another family if a laptop is accidentally damaged by another student
