We acknowledge and pay respect to the Kombumerri people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and learn. We would like to pay our respects to all Elders past, present and emerging as they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hopes of our Indigenous people.

Both students and staff at St Andrews enjoy a diverse and comprehensive range of Information Technology resources.

Our state-of-the-art Cecile Ryan Resource Centre houses the Information Technology department, offering a dedicated Help Desk and information service to support all members of our community.

At our College, wireless technology is seamlessly accessible in every learning space, ensuring connectivity and convenience for all.

Students at St Andrews have access to the latest industry-standard software, such as Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, and Microsoft Office, enabling them to develop valuable skills that align with real-world standards.

At St Andrews, we recognise the importance of tailoring our technology offerings to be age-appropriate and conducive to effective learning outcomes for students at every year level. We strive to create an environment that fosters engagement, growth, and success through the integration of technology into our curriculum.

At St Andrews Lutheran College, we empower our students with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly evolving digital world.

Technology in the Secondary School 

Student Device Pathway

Throughout a student’s journey in Years 7 to 12, it is anticipated that students will require two devices. A new device in Year 7, which should have a life span until approximately the end of Year 9. The second device purchased will then support students as they complete their final schooling in Years 10 to 12.

Middle Years (Year 7 to 9)
Senior Years (Year 10 to 12)

Middle Years (Year 7 to 9)

Students in Years 7 to 9 are required to provide their own device for educational purposes within the classroom. The device requirements and specifications are based around function and are as follows:       

  1. 8GB RAM minimum
  2. 256 GB SSD Hard Drive minimum
  3. Windows 11 (no Apple devices)
  4. Stylus enabled 
  5. Touch enabled
  6. Keyboard
  7. Long battery life (at least eight hours) 
  8. Light weight and portable 

It is highly recommended that families purchase a sturdy case and insurance in case of accidental damage.

Senior Years (Year 10 to 12)

Students are required to provide their own device for educational purposes within the classroom.

Device type is not mandated as students transition to the Senior Years however, we value the following functionality to leverage the use of OneNote which is used within the classroom.

  1. Stylus enabled device
  2. Front facing camera
  3. Keyboard
  4. Long battery life (at least eight hours)
  5. Light weight and portable

If in the Senior Years, music is selected as a senior subject, then a mac would be required to run subject specific software. 

Information Technology Purchasing Portal

St Andrews has partnered with JB HIFI to offer educational pricing on technology for members of the St Andrews community through an online portal. Purchasing through this portal is optional.

Typically, these products are non-retail products, meaning you will not find them in the JB HIFI stores. All orders placed online will be delivered to a JB HIFI store nominated by you for collection, including the Burleigh Heads store.
