It is of utmost importance that you purchase the correct device for your child in order to ensure smooth operation at all times. We make use of the IT School learner management system which enables us to upload and manage all textbooks for all learners. The system also gives us the ability to enrich the textbook with extra material such as pictures, videos, questionnaires etc. Harvest is also fully equipped with a state of the art Wi-Fi system that will enable our children and staff to access their textbooks and resources. Please note that the school does not provide the learners with internet access; all resources are downloaded from our local IT School server. With this said, your child will be able to access resources, if they are not at school, via any third party internet provider.
Tablet specifications 2019:
Harvest Christian School has made a decision that all students have to use a Samsung Tablet, 10 inch, with the following minimum specs:
- Quad Core CPU at 1.3 GHz processing speed or higher
- 16 GB internal storage space or higher
- 2 GB RAM or higher
- Only Android version 5.1.1 or higher
- 6 hours minimum battery life
We further advise you to insure the device against damage and theft.
In order to manage the process of implementation and registration of learners and their devices we require all Grade 3s to have their tablets ready during the fourth term. You will be advised on the specific date later on.
