Student BYOD and Privacy
Question: Does GBHS spy on students personal devices?
BYOD for Students
If you are interested in being able to use your own device online for learning then you must collect a BYOD Agreement from the office and get it signed. Connections are done on Mondays and Thursdays by Yvette and Bluey. Bring in your signed form, along with your device. If you have already connected a device we will probably have your form here.
Have a look at the BYOD and Wifi page for further information.

Microsoft Office 365 for Students - if you wish to have a copy of this installed on your own device for free please go to this site and register with your school email address. Note: You must be over 13 years of age. Please only install this if you think you need Microsoft Office on your own device. It is quite a big programme so it will take up room on your computer, and it will stop working when you leave our school. Here is a PDF with all the information.
We recommend using Google Apps for Education - but Office 365 is available for students who would like it.
