North Melbourne Primary School uses Apple technology throughout Prep – Year 6.

Our students use iPads to support and enhance their learning experiences. In years Prep to Year 2, the school leases iPads for shared classroom use. In Year 3-6, students have the option to bring an iPad from home to use at school, or can lease an iPad from the school to use. In 2024, the lease cost is $160 per year.
