Being Prepared

As the iPad is an individual device that students can personalise, it is important that students have made the necessary preparations before receiving their iPad and that they take responsibility for being prepared each school day. 

What needs to be done before I receive an iPad?

  • Get an Apple ID  - having an Apple ID is necessary to enable the downloading of Apps, eBooks, music, video and is essential for iCloud backups and other features. Students will need to bring their Apple ID on the day they receive their iPad at school.
    • Many students who own existing Apple devices such as iPhones or iPods may already have an Apple ID. If you have an Apple ID then you can use it for the iPad as well. For those that don't it is a simple process to create one. (Students who are under the age of 13 will need thier parents to set up their Apple ID accounts.)

  • Each night place your iPad on charge. These devices take longer to charge than a phone so charging overnight will ensure enough battery life to last the next school day. 
  • Ensure you have downloaded any Apps that teachers have asked you to. Free Apps can be downloaded by going to the App Store icon on your iPad. Apps that cost are paid for by the School and notification of these apps will be via a link in an email. Open the Mail application to see if you have any new emails.
  • Ensure you have downloaded any eBooks or PDF's that your teachers have instructed you to. Links to these are found at the top each subject in Moodle.
  • Leave the cover on supplied by the school. iPads are robust but the covers add an extra level of protection.
  • Pack it safely in your backpack. The best section is the padded section at the back of the backpack.
