Highland Reserve State School believe in developing key skills of the 21st Century Learner, including creative and critical thinking, effective communication and collaboration. We believe that our iLearn@HRSS BYOD iPad program will support successful development of these skills.
As of 2020, students in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are invited to bring their own iPad to school to engage with the curriculum.

Highland Reserve State School highly recommends setting up your child with Family Sharing.
Family Sharing makes it easy for up to six family members to share such things as Apps, music, movie, TV, and book purchases without sharing each other's Apple accounts. It includes the ability to set up an Apple ID for kids, set permissions remotely with Screen Time, and approve spending and downloads from a parent's device.
For more information and instructions on how to setup Family Sharing, please click the link below.
