Year 4 Chromebook Purchasing Scheme
At Ahipara School we want to provide your child with an equitable, high quality and engaging education. We offer all of our Year 4 students with an opportunity to buy their own chromebook through The Te Hiku Education Trust.
Purchasing a Chromebook:
To ensure this is accessible to all whanau the Trust offer many plans and payment options to suit. These include:
Paying the full amount
Payment through Finance Now (1-3 year options)
Payment through the Te Hiku Education Trust (for possible credit issues)
We can also provide a letter for financial support for Work and Income
What do I get when I purchase a chromebook?
All chromebooks come with three years of no excess insurance, white gloving onto our school network, a carry case and charger. The insurance covers two repairs as well as one complete replacement if the device is lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair.
To keep our teachers focused on teaching and not technical difficulties, we do not accept devices purchased outside of our sponsoring trust.
Taking devices home:
When chromebooks are purchased, student's leave their device at school until whanau attend our Kawa of Care Hui offered once per term. The purpose of this hui is to insure whanau are aware of how to take care of the device and make sure their child is participating safely online at home.
