Laptops and Stationery

Information and communication technology plays an important role in learning at St Margaret's College.

Laptop programme

Our 1:1 laptop initiative has been running for more than a decade, and information and communication technology are embedded in multiple learning aspects of our curriculum framework. All students from Year 7 upwards are required to have an Apple laptop.

For the purchase of the laptop and accessories we recommend our IT partner Cyclone Computers. Cyclone Computers is a licensed Apple Education Retailer and is using its collective relationship with other New Zealand schools to provide parents with an easy online ordering service along with the advantages of bulk buying.

Our laptop purchase recommendations

  • Apple MacBook Air or Pro 13”
  • laptop sleeve or glove
  • memory sticks or a USB powered hard drive
  • extended warranty

A full range of stationery requirements is available at Maggie’s Shop and Café, located at our Winchester Street entrance, including exercise books, art supplies and photographic supplies. Information on ordering stationery via OfficeMax MySchool and art supplies via Gordon Harris can be found here:
