BYOD Purchase Portal
Joseph Banks Secondary College has worked with JB HI-FI to secure discounted pricing on devices for the College’s BYOD program. Families that attend Joseph Banks Secondary College are welcome to purchase devices and accessories, including cases, smart pencils, and extended warranties through this purchase portal.
This portal has options for both the Middle School and Senior School BYOD Programs. Below are some examples of devices and accessories and their comparative pricing from both Retail locations and the BYOD portal.

This is an optional service available to Joseph Banks Secondary College families. It is not a requirement that students have a device that has been purchased through this service. Families should conduct their own research to find the pricing and supply options that work best for them.
This supply and delivery of devices and accessories is provided by JB Hi-Fi. Enquiries regarding orders after they are placed should be directed to JB Hi-Fi as Joseph Banks Secondary College is unable to provide any updates associated with orders.
DEP stands for Device Enrolment Program, and refers to a service where an Apple iPad purchased through the Joseph Banks Secondary College BYOD Portal will be automatically configured for school use. This means that an iPad purchased through the BYOD Portal will automatically configure itself for school use by downloading school applications, and settings so students are ready for learning on day one of school. This also means that families do not have to attend any of the Jamf School configuration days outlined here, as Jamf School (ZuluDesk) is configured automatically.
All devices that are sourced for use at the College should align with the relevant BYOD requirements for the students year level, regardless of where they are purchased from. Information about requirements can be found on our Technology and BYOD page.
