South Island School 1:1 Laptop Programme
South Island School (SIS) is committed to a 1 student to 1 laptop initiative with the goal of enhancing and expanding the learning opportunities for all students. SIS opted for Apple computers after careful analysis of a variety of computing products, services and pedagogical needs. The School ICT infrastructure and e-resources are set up for the Mac platform.
All students at SIS must have a MacBook Air (recommended for Years 7 to 9) or MacBook Pro Laptop. MacBook is an essential piece of equipment for day-to-day learning and communications in school. The school’s ICT Centre cannot provide support to other brand-name laptops except MacBook.
Please note that only MacBooks purchased through the school online order platform will be supported by the Apple service counter at school.

Zurich Insurance (Optional)
Accidents happen. No matter how careful you are with your laptop, there is always a chance that something may happen. In recognition of this possibility, South Island School has partnered with Zurich Insurance to provide low-cost accidental damage and loss insurance coverage*.
If you wish to purchase this insurance, it must be done within 3 weeks after the laptop is collected by the student/parent.
Insurance for the laptop is renewable yearly (by an individual invitation letter from Zurich prior to the policy expiry). Zurich reserves the right to decline any renewal based on business considerations. For laptop insurance matters, please quote your policy number and contact:
Hotline: 2968 2288
*Insurance coverage is only available for laptops purchased through the school’s 1:1 Laptop Programme
