General Information

In 2024, CBC will provide school-owned laptops for Year 2 to 11 students, with Year 12 students utilising a Bring Your Own Device model.  There are core differences between conditions of laptop use across the year levels.

The use of all student laptops, whether school-provided or BYOD, is governed by the ICT Acceptable Use Policy. The main difference however is that any damage or loss of a school-provided laptop or charger must be reported to the IT Department, whether the incident occurred during school time or outside of school.  We have limited repair coverage on laptop damage, which in most cases will be at no cost to families.  Laptop loss is not covered however and will be charged to families.

New school-provided laptops are issued to students at the start of Year 7 and again in Year 10. At the end of each three-year cycle, the laptop and charger must be returned to the school before a new laptop is issued.

Since Year 12 students will bring their own device (for 2024), it is strongly recommended that parents acquire insurance on the laptop purchased through an extension on an existing insurance policy or a separate policy to cover accidental damage.


Frequently Asked Questions

When will my son receive his laptop?

Year 7 and 10 students, as well as any new Year 8 and 9 students, are issued a laptop in the first week of each school Year / Term.  Students are issued a laptop, charger, and bag.


How does laptop provision work in Junior school?

Junior school laptops are issued to Year 2 to Year 6 students at the start of the year or on the student’s first day of school. Laptops are kept in the classroom overnight in charging bays so they are ready to go each morning.  These laptops are also refreshed on a regular cycle to keep the technology current.


How does laptop provision work in the Senior school?

In 2024, students in Years 7 to 11 are issued with a school-owned laptop, charger, and bag.  Students must take their laptop home each night hence it is their responsibility to fully charge the laptop ready for each school day. There is a laptop charging bay in the Senior Library that all Senior students can access to charge their laptops securely.  Laptops must be returned to the school at the end of Year 9 as a new laptop will be issued at the start of Year 10.


My school-provided laptop has been damaged, what do I do?

Take your laptop straight to the IT Department when you are next at school.  They will assess the laptop and, in most cases, can provide a loan laptop while the laptop is being repaired.  Most repairs are free of charge (assuming no part or all of the laptop is missing/lost).


My own (BYOD) laptop has a problem, what can I do?

The IT Department will assist with troubleshooting a student’s personal laptop (Year 12 only) but will not be able to repair personal laptops.  The advice can be given on pursuing repair, ie through the place of purchase, etc.


What sort of Laptop should I purchase for Year 12 (2024 only)?

Students studying Year 12 in 2024 can bring their own laptop.  We recommend students purchase a laptop that is reasonable for their intended line of study and parents can refer to our BYOD Equipment Purchasing guide for information.

QKR and Operoo Guide



CBC uses the Operoo online system for student emergency contact and medical information. This system is an easy way for parents/caregivers to keep emergency contact and medical information up-to-date. It also puts parents in control of this data so you will always know what emergency contacts and medical information is shared with CBC.

Parent’s guide to getting started with the Operoo online system:

  1. Simply wait for CBC to send you an email from our Operoo system asking you to sign up or create your account. (or contact CBC if you haven’t received an email)
  2. Follow the instructions in the email to create your account. Operoo will send the initial email to one parent to create the initial care profile for their child. That parent becomes the ‘Profile Owner’ but is able to create access for other parents. A second parent can also be added as a ‘notification only’ parent.For more information on how to do this, please visit this link: Sharing information with another Parent/Caregiver

You’re done!  You will now receive notifications whenever there is an electronic form to complete from CBC.


You can also download the Operoo Central app from any mobile device.

Download the App here – Google Play (Android) or App Store (iOS/Apple)


Please note that the College expectation is that Profile Owners must give ‘view and modify access’ to the other parent unless there is a court order that would deny the other parent access to such information.

From CBC’s perspective, you or your child’s information will only be visible by the relevant staff for you or your child, and will be managed in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
