Mount Carmel College has committed to providing the best opportunities for our students to engage with up-to-date technologies.
Technology used at Mount Carmel supports the development of relevant skills, including creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
Laptops for students in Years 5 – 10 allow students to access the full curriculum on a device that will also prepare them for their College years. Specialised software and services are accessible, allowing the College to better meet our students’ needs in preparing them for the technology demands of the 21st century.
The device chosen is the Lenovo Yoga 500w. Students lease this through the College as a hire purchase scheme over a four-year period (Years 7-10), during which the College retains full ownership of the device until the Resource Levy charges are paid in full. The College spreads the costs over the device’s estimated lifetime (deemed four years). At the end of this period, students/parents will own the device.
The full cost of the device includes the Lenovo Yoga 500w laptop, stylus pen, charger pack and extended warranty including accidental damage cover. The warranty includes damage to screens and only one accidental damage can be claimed each calendar year.
