One to World iPad Programme Parent Guide
Devices are required for a student's first day of school - this is compulsory. In grades 3 to 6, students must bring their own iPad to school every day. Order your iPad early to ensure you have it before the new school year starts and load it with the required Apps.
Grades 3 to 6: The minimum requirements and accessories are a 6th Generation 9.7 inch or the latest 10.2 inch 9th Generation iPad Wi-Fi model with at least 64GB, but 265GB storage capacity is preferable a digital pencil and a protective case with a keyboard. We recommend the Logitech Slim Folio iPad Keyboard Case and the Logitech Crayon for iPad to have access to the note-taking, writing and drawing capabilities.
Students are permitted to bring to school an iPad with higher specifications. In other words, if you have already purchased an iPad Pro or iPad Air that supports a digital pencil and keyboard or you want to select an iPad with higher specifications or a larger screen, it is permitted.
