All classes will have a digital aspect to them allowing students to bring their own devices and access the internet via a monitored school server. There are also two accelerate classes.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
All BYOD devices can be accepted at Fairfield Intermediate, however some are definitely more equipped than others to handle what we do here in the classroom and around the school.
If price is the factor, go with a Chromebook that has at least 4GB Ram, these are internet based machines that allow students to browse the web and be on google drive. So anything online is accessible.
Laptops, however, are far superior and are reasonably priced now. They can download apps to use in the classroom, such as Word and Sketch-Up for tech drawing. They last longer and they have more ease of use. HP and Mac are the two most reliable brands in laptops.
I-pad and other tablets are suitable if nothing else is available, but are not suitable for typing up work and they have too many apps that are easily distractable for students.
Notebooks are cheap as they are small laptop versions, but they have a lifespan of around 6 months before they start to slow down and the batteries do not last longer than a block of learning. Avoid these if you can help it.
Mobile phones are not permitted to be used at Fairfield Intermediate as a BYOD.
There is plenty of FREE PARKING at the rear of the building. Their current shop hours are Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and Saturday from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm.
