Back to School

Welcome to Collegiate!

A very warm welcome to all our new and returning students. We understand that while exciting, returning to school can also be a stressful process. Don’t worry – we’re here to support you. Below are some resources to help prepare you for the year ahead.

Technology Requirements

Devices for Kinder to Year 4

From Kinder to Year 1, students have a shared class set of iPads. Students in Years 2 to 4 have their own individual in-class iPads, provided by the school. Parents do not need to purchase a device.

Prescribed Device Program for Years 5 to 7

In 2023, we are launching a Microsoft Surface Program in Year 5. This program will progressively roll out to Years 5-7 over the next 3 years. During the first week of term, Year 5 students will be issued with a Microsoft Surface device. The student will retain the device until they complete Year 7.

Students entering the school in Years 6 and 7 will be contacted by enrolments department to organise an appropriate device.

Laptops for Years 8 to 12

Year 8 to 12 students are welcome to bring any laptop they like, as long as it is modern and either Windows or Mac.

Windows devices must have a minimum operating system of either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro. We cannot support Windows 10S.

Outside Hours Care

We offer an Outside School Hours Care program, including before and after school care, which is conducted in Alkira on the Junior School Campus during term time. This is available to all Collegiate students aged 12 or younger. The program runs weekdays from 7.30am to 8.30am and 3 pm to 6 pm, except on public holidays. Bookings are made through the Program Coordinator or via the Early Learning Centre by contacting 6211 4953.  

The Vacation Care Program operates during term breaks and over the Christmas holidays. General closure is between Christmas and New Year’s Day, public holidays, Easter Tuesday and the Friday after the Royal Hobart Show Day. Special events and fun activities are planned for the children, including excursions to the beach, parks and places of interest.
