To equip your child with an iPad for the 1:1 Program in their Year 3-6 classrooms, Piara Waters Primary School has partnered with Winthrop Australia.
This enables you to access heavily discounted devices and protective cases, an AppleCare+ Protection Plan, options for insurance and financing, home delivery of your device, and ongoing access to Winthrop’s Service Portal in the event that your child’s device needs repair.

In order to access the learning activities in the classroom, there is a bank or core apps that need to be installed on your child's iPad. Many of the apps are free, there is a small number of apps that require purchasing. The apps can be downloaded through the Apple App Store. A $30 iTunes card is on your child's booklist (Years 3-6) which will enable you to purchase all the required apps. All apps have been tried and tested with an emphasis on educational purpose and creativity. The document below has the core apps needed for 2020; however, some additional apps may be added to this list (but will not exceed the $30 iTunes card limit).
Please note that in order for all these apps to work with the required functionality, the iPad must have the following operating software installed as a minimum requirement (iOS 12). If your child is using an older iPad, please check that it supports iOS12. If an iPad is brought to school without these requirements, it will be unable to be used in the classroom and will be sent home.
