In 2022–23, AHL realised a long-held ambition, when all secondary students at hostels received a laptop for their education, recreational and personal use.
AHL’s ICT and Operations teams worked alongside Heads of Boarding and partner schools to ensure the laptops provided maximum flexibility and security, with built-in child safety features.
AHL provides internet connectivity and the computers are banked every night to ensure integrity protection against inappropriate sites, malware and viruses.
The students were trained using First Nations resources from the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.
These resources enable students to hear stories from mob and find tips to help them be deadly online.
The provision of laptops for all secondary students is now business as usual at AHL.
Students keep their laptops when they transition to further education and careers beyond school.
