1:1 iPad Programme


Every Grade 1 – 3 student will use their own iPad to develop their digital portfolio. By personalizing the iPad and building a portfolio the student can develop confidence and competence through structured play and inquiry, build up a portfolio of learning through media (audio and visual), better engage in personalized literacy development, better communicate to teachers and parents, and obtain more timely and focused feedback from a wider range of people.

This will continue to be part of a balanced approach to each child’s education, with handwriting and other non-digital skills continuing to be a part of their learning. What the iPad will enable is a sharing in real time with parents and the building of a personalized record of achievement that will link into later years.


The school’s increased use of iPads in primary grades has enabled demonstrated increases in digital literacy and learning constructions previously unattainable. The touch capability of iPads provides access to learning for young students previously unavailable. This will allow more deeper and personalized learning opportunities to be pursued, which can be built on in later years.

iPads Stay at School

Under normal circumstances, it is intended for security and balance reasons that the Grade 1-3 iPad will not go home everyday. It will be sent home in the summer holiday. This arrangement is subject to review and parents will be notified with the changes.

Upon Leaving the School

CDNIS has a number of agreements with our software suppliers. The School’s software is specifically dedicated for our educational needs. Regrettably, we cannot extend those software licenses to students who depart or graduate from CDNIS.

Please follow the leavers procedures to back up and reset your device before leaving school.

The Admissions Office will be notified once the process is completed. For those who fail to comply with the above procedures, the School reserves the right to withhold transcripts and/or factory reset the devices remotely.
