Year 7-12 students need to install Microsoft Office 2016 on their BYOx laptop.
Students must uninstall this software from all of their devices once they are no longer enrolled in a Queensland state school.
This free program is to be installed on Year 7-12 student BYOx laptops for use in Mathematics subjects.
Security software suite with anti-virus and anti-malware is required to be installed on student laptops e.g. Nortons by Symantec, AVG, McAfee, Trend Micro, Avira
NOTE: Security software may impact on the ability to connect student BYOx laptops to the state-wide Department of Education wireless network. Students need to be able to turn off security software if required (local administrator permissions), else parents\carers (with username and passwords) will need to come with the student to the Student Tech Hub in the Middle Senior Library to connect the laptop (8 am recommended). Microsoft Family and Qustodio (MacOS) do not allow students to connect their BYOx laptops and should not be installed.
