Price comparison for some of the products available to families under the Colleges BYOD Portal. These prices are correct as at September 21st 2021 at 9:24PM AWST. Prices may vary on external retail websites and the BYOD Portal, and Joseph Banks Secondary College accepts no liability for any variance in price information. These prices refer to the supply price of the item and exclude any further charges that may be associated with, but not limited to, delivery or payment type.

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.
