Your investment in your child’s learning is an essential part of our digital learning programme’s success. Your child’s learning device is selected annually, via a rigorous process, which determines best functionality, robustness, usability and affordability for families.
How do I get a device for my child?
Your child will be issued with their own device at the start of the school year once you have paid a $40 deposit, and put in place arrangements for paying the balance through a credit sale agreement or full payment.
How much is the student learner device?
$500.00 over 1, 2 or 3 years.
What is included in this package ?
The device (Chromebook); sturdy bag; Google licence to enable the learning environment your child will be working in; extended warranty; insurance scheme for breakage ($40 excess fee for each claim).
How do I pay for my child’s device?
You may choose to pay for your child’s device in full at the start of the year, or by making regular payments over 1-3 years, by automatic payment. If you are paying off the device over one, two or three years, you will do this through a Credit Sale Agreement. This is a legal document that means you are legally responsible for :
- Making regular payments equivalent to the amount set out in the agreement
- Ensuring that all due care is exercised to look after the device
- all payment arrears when your child leaves this school
You can make regular repayments to the Taitokerau Education Trust (Credit Sale contract) over 12, 24 or 36 months. The device must be paid off before your child leaves the Cluster.
Until you have paid off your child’s device, it remains the property of the financier as identified in the credit sale agreement. Once you have completed all payments, you become the owner of the device. The device must be paid off in full before your child leaves the school cluster.
If you fail to make payments, the device may be withdrawn from your child. Please don’t let this happen as your child relies on this tool for their learning.
