As part of our strong commitment to future-focused teaching and learning, Hunter Sports High School is contuing to move forward with our Bring Your Own Learning Device Program (BYOLD). We're now in the second phase of our BYOLD program with the new school boasting the latest technology for our staff, our classrooms and our students. 

At Hunter Sports High, the BYOLD initiative allows students to bring and use their own personal computing devices at school. Although the specifications of the device are important BYOLD is about creating constructive change in teaching practices and empowering the students to make decisions regarding how they will learn in class. Students in time, will connect with the global world and learn to design, create and share their ideas in an engaging manner.

Please note that any student who brings a device to Hunter Sports High School and connects to the school Wi-Fi or uses it in class must complete a student agreement first.
