At John Paul College we are dedicated to building an educational environment that allows staff and students to participate in learning and technical education in the immediate years ahead.

All students have been working with a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program for a number of years, which sees every student bring an electronic device to school to support their learning.

In modern times, we have always been a pioneer school on the Mornington Peninsula in terms of ICT. Recently we have improved our Wireless Network (over 150 Access Points), to include more external and sophisticated learning spaces. This permits students to work and learn in an environment that facilitates their progression into the next decade and beyond. 

Staff and students have access to SIMON, our Learning Management system, which provides a shared and collaborative learning atmosphere. Parents and Guardians have access to the Parent Access Module (PAM) another feature that works in tandem with communications and your child’s academic learning. PAM can also be accessed via an App on your mobile device. (iTunes download or Android Download).

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Minimum Specifications 2024

John Paul College has been working with a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program for a number of years, which sees every student bring an electronic device to school to support their learning.

In 2024, students in Years 7 to 9 will be using a Windows Laptop Device. Students in Years 10 to 12 will continue to have the option of choosing a Windows device or MAC.

Edunet Computer Solutions Parent Portal

The College has worked with an external provider, Edunet Computer Solutions, to provide a portal for parents to utilise the bulk buying power of this company to endeavour to obtain the lowest prices available for the recommended devices and to provide support for any issues that may arise.

To pre-order your child’s education device:
1. Go to the Edunet Parent Portal

2. Select the relevant student year level.

3. If your child is in Years 10 to 12 please use the “Senior Students” link on the portal and enter the code “JPCSENIOR”

4. Follow the prompts to choose options for your device including insurance and bags. As accidents happen, the College recommends insurance coverage, which is available via the parent portal for accidental damage or check with your current insurance. 

5. Enter your personal details. 

6. Select a payment method and complete your order. 

If you have any questions in regards to purchasing, please feel free to contact Edunet by going to and clicking on the ‘call us’ or ‘Email us’ links at the top of the screen.

Log a Warranty Claim with Edunet

For all warranty and insurance claims please visit the following page 

Edunet will support all devices purchased through JPC's current vendor or previous vendor's parent portal.

Please note:

That whilst John Paul College has made arrangements with Edunet Computer Solutions , to help simplify a laptop purchase if you use the Edunet Portal you are buying direct from Edunet and will need to comply with their terms and conditions. John Paul College does not receive any commercial reward or benefit for purchases made by parents. There is no obligation to buy through Edunet and parents may use a vendor of their choice, provided the device meets the minimum specifications as listed above. These minimum specifications have been set by the College so all students are able to focus on their learning whilst at John Paul College.

eSmart and Cybersafety 

John Paul College is an eSmart accredited school. eSmart is a guiding framework for schools to manage cybersafety and wellbeing. eSmart helps teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology and reduce their exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft, online sexual predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content. eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah & Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. Our work towards achieving eSmart status over the past few years has involved the whole school community—for example, integrating cybersafety into our wellbeing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents, and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

John Paul College is proud to be an eSmart school and we will continue to develop policies, procedures and strategies to educate our community about cybersafety and wellbeing. More information is available at
