Firstly the good news: we have received the laptops! HP, our chosen supplier, have delivered them and we are busily preparing each machine with the software the students will need, as well as all the school printer drivers, network information and so on.
One of the reasons we have chosen the 1 to 1 laptop scheme is the support it enables us to offer our students and their families, as they begin to develop the habits that will enable their future success. It has always been our aim to build a strong partnership with parents, working together to help support our students to learn to use the tool effectively to aid their learning. To that end, we would like to invite you and your child to our laptop collection evening in the school library on Thursday October 12th at 5:00pm.
You will first receive and sign for your laptop with our vendor in the library before making your way upstairs to the Senior School Centre for a brief presentation, where we will address some basic expectations, re-iterate some of the school’s policies on the use of laptops and offer some useful guidelines and links to information that you may find helpful, when managing this new tool.
We have also secured the insurance services of Zurich at a special rate. This is an optional extra which will be of principal benefit to you in safeguarding against the loss of your laptop. This offer is optional and they will be on hand on Thursday to answer your questions.
Should you have any further questions at this time, please do not hesitate to contact us via the school’s 1:1 website: https://sites.google.com/a/stconline.edu.hk/1-to-1/
We look forward to seeing you then.
