BYO Laptop Program for Year 10 - 12 Only
All students enrolled at Mount Gravatt High School in years 7 to 12 are able to participate in the school provided take home laptop program. Students enrolled in Years 10-12 have the additional option to bring their own device (BYOD).
As you purchase your own laptop the student resource scheme cost for BYOD participants is reduced to $420 per annum, this fee includes the Text Book and Resource Allowance (TRA) component which has been deducted to reduce the SRS fee payable. Parents are reminded that only laptops purchased from the BYO purchasing portal (see below) found on our school website can be used as part of the BYOD program. BYO devices are also required to be presented to our IT Department for installation of all school software before they can connect and be used on the school network.
Parents of Senior Students can access the Education Queensland approved vendors online purchase portals via the links below:
Acer - Please note the Acer BYO portal is currently down we are working with our provider to have this restored as soon as possible.

Please note the following processes when purchasing a BYO device:
Select one of the available DELL or ACER devices from the above web portal links.
Each of these devices include 3 year next business day onsite warranty as well as accidental damage protection. Please have a read of the relevant documentation that outlines the policy i.e. what is covered and what is not.
Once you have placed an order through the website direct with the manufacture it will take approximately 2 weeks for delivery (over Christmas period delivery can take up to 4-6 weeks).
Delivery will be to your nominated address i.e. home
All laptops will come with the standard manufacture software only i.e. windows operating system
When your laptop arrives please bring it to the IT help desk at school where we will install all of the required school software.
BYO devices will throughout the year continue to be supported by the IT help desk in the same way school provided devices have always been serviced. The IT department will continue to troubleshoot minor software issues with the students and should a manufacture warranty or accidental damage claim need to be logged we will provide a report home for parental permission before we log a job on your behalf. This enables the school to be the central place for all issues including warranty and or damages to be repaired without requiring a technician to come out to your home.
Should you have any questions please send email to BYO@mtgravattshs.eq.edu.au
