Purchasing Portals:

Whilst the responsibility for purchasing a device for our BYOD programs lies with the parent and student, Elanora State High has gone to lengths to provide purchasing opportunities that provide devices (and attached service) that best suits our BYOD programs.

Below you can access vendors who already supply devices to Education Queensland schools and are offering arrangements that are similar to what we as a school receive when we purchase. You may wish to use these when purchasing a device for our BYOD program:
