Onehunga High School maintains a comprehensive ICT infrastructure, including an extensive school Wi-Fi network. Students have access to specialist computer technology and software in subjects such as Design, Music, and Media Studies, along with access to a number of self-contained computer pods.
After a successful trial in 2016, all students in 2020 are asked to bring a device to support their learning. If students do not already have a device, we recommend purchasing a Chromebook, and have special deals in place to ensure our families secure competitive pricing.
We believe that this initiative is enhancing the learning for our students, and provides another tool to improve student achievement. We have already seen improvements in student engagement and learning across a number of classes where students have their own device.
We encourage students at all levels to bring their own device to school to support their learning.
Access to the School Wi-Fi Network
From the beginning of 2020 we are changing the way that we offer the school wifi connection. Connecting to the school wifi will only be possible on a device such as a Chromebook or laptop. There will be no school wifi connectivity for mobile phones. We ask that all students bring in their BYOD device during the first week of school so that it can be registered to connect with the school wifi. Registering devices will take place in classes during the first week of school.
Onehunga High School utilises the Google Apps for Education platform, which we call ‘OneLearn’. Our students all have their own OneLearn account, which gives them access to Google Classroom, Docs, Drive, and their own Gmail account. Our teachers have undertaken extensive professional development on how to use this platform effectively, and many regularly use the Google suite as part of their teaching programme at all levels.
