Students are required to bring their own device as part of their St Pauls education

St Pauls is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school. A wealth of studies identify the positive benefits of infusing technology into the classroom, this coupled with the successful practice witnessed in many other schools, has motivated St Pauls to pursue a 1:1 technology program in the College.

Technology is creating and shaping our present and our future. For students to become independent, collaborative and self-motivated learners, they need to be skilled in its use and applications in their daily social and working lives.
