The school only uses Wi-Fi versions of iPads. If students bring cellular versions of the iPad to school, they are not allowed to have a SIM card installed for safety and security reasons.
Please ensure each iPad is stored in a drop-proof case. Keyboards and styluses are not required but are optional accessories.
If your family already has an iPad Air 3rd Generation or iPad mini 5th Generation (or newer) and you would like to send this to school with your child, you do not need to purchase a new device at this time.
North Kalgoorlie Primary School does not endorse any particular store to purchase iPads from. If you are purchasing a new iPad, there are options available locally and online.
Local suppliers: Retravision and Harvey Norman.

We encourage parents to consider taking out cover or including the iPad in their insurance where possible as the iPad is brought to school at your own risk.
