Ferny Hills State School understands that every one of our families is different and that financial access to a device may differ. As such we accept a variety of iPad models in the program which all utilise the latest operating system (iOS) and support the installation of the most recent applications.
This minimum requirements list allows families to choose to send with their child a device already owned or purchased second hand. As all devices must be subject to the filtering of our internet system we do not accept cellular models.
Please note that if buying a brand new iPad for Year 4 – the optimum model is an iPad 2018 (6th generation) 32 GB. Purchase of this device ensures that the life of the device will endure over the remaining 3 years of primary school.
All storage versions are supported in our iPad program – 32GB, 64GB, 128GB. Note that any personal applications and content placed on the device may interfere with the storage requirements for school use.
