Access other resources

Information Technology

Gisborne Secondary College has an extensive and sophisticated computer network and a wide range of resources including computers throughout the College, scanners, printers and copiers. We also pride ourselves on the broad range of academic and industry standard software.

In order to equitably share the cost of using these resources, students are credited with printing and photocopying credits through payment of the school fees. Extra credits may be purchased by students through the money window. This system has helped us to manage our printing costs and paper usage / waste.

The College employs onsite school-based technicians to assist us in managing and maintaining the resources mentioned, and to support staff and students with the many and varied issues which can and do arise when using so much technology-based equipment.

While the cost to parents of leasing or purchasing a device – either from their own preferred supplier, or JB Hi Fi – for their child is not insignificant this is offset by the savings in many areas of the cost of textbooks which for some subjects are no longer required.

It is also balanced by the fact that the software that is loaded onto their device is covered by the school software licenses, and that students have access to onsite assistance available from our school-based technicians.
