1:1 laptop programme for parents of students joining Sha Tin College in Year 7, August 2018
Congratulations on your son/daughter being offered a place at Sha Tin College. At STC, in Years 7-9, we operate a single-model school-supported laptop programme, with 3 years full warranty and accidental damage insurance. We have refined the programme over the last six years and believe there are significant benefits to this single-model approach.
You will need to purchase the current school model, the HP EliteBook 830 GS Notebook PC, by using the order form included with this letter. Please return the order form and payment by May 14th to the school.
Following this, the school will place the order with HP, the laptops will then be prepared with the software that we require and subsequently distributed at a series of laptop evenings from the 28th to 30th August. Details of these evenings will be provided later in this term. Please note that the school is not making money on this transaction as this is a purchase agreement between you and an external vendor. Sha Tin College sources the best value model which meets the learning needs for Years 7 to 9, then facilitates the transaction and offers ongoing support and training for the use of this model.
For further details of the programme, our rationale, or links to some useful sites on digital practice in the 21st Century, please see our 1:1 website, this can also be found via the school website.
