CCGS Student Device Program


Christ Church Grammar School has a long history of utilising effective contemporary technologies to supplement and/or enhance teaching, learning and school administration. Emerging changes to technology are periodically reviewed to ensure that the Christ Church community maintains access to technologies that are diverse, effective and meet the expectations of the community. In terms of teaching and learning, Christ Church Grammar School has adopted a school-funded one-to-one device program across its student and teacher bodies.

The devices

Christ Church Grammar School (CCGS) has been through an extensive evolution of devices programs since the introduction of devices in 2003. Having journeyed through the many iterations of device programs including handhelds, labs, laptop trolleys etc., the School has decided to use two categories of devices for the students in the foreseeable future:

  • The iPad – For students in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6
  • The Surface – For students in Years 7 to 12


Christ Church Grammar School will continue to:

  • Educate boys on safe and responsible internet and social media use
  • Follow Federal Government and best practice approaches to cyber-safety in schools
  • Filter and monitor all content accessed by students while at school. As such Christ Church strongly discourages parents and guardians from purchasing wireless hotspot devices, such as Internet enabled smartphones, routers or any form of independent Internet plans for their child, as these circumvent the School filtering system
  • Limit access to social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and the like) at school only to boarding students for defined periods out of school hours
  • Educate students on digital citizenship and the expectation/responsibility of each person to protect their own online reputation as well as the reputation of their peers or teachers online
