Year 9 Student Laptop Choices & Laptops for all Students

We would like to remind all Year 9 parents that this is a good time to start thinking about your child’s laptop choice.

Please note that unless your child was a late entrant to the school,  the accidental damage policy and loaner laptop support programme that you purchased bundled together with your child’s school laptop in Year 7 will expire at the end of this academic year.

Importantly this means that from the start of the next academic year your child’s current West Island School laptop will no longer be supported by the West Island School Service Desk, nor will your child be able to borrow a loaner laptop from the school.

For seamless continuity in your child’s laptop use, West Island School strongly urges you to replace your child’s current laptop with the next generation of school laptop. The laptop was chosen after a comprehensive testing and tender process, overseen by the School Council.  In addition to being a high quality, modern, rugged and popular laptop the WIS laptop benefits from:

  • Comprehensive WIS Service Desk Support
  • 3 year Accidental Damage Policy
  • Access to a pool of loaner laptops
  • Management of the software on the WIS image
  • Seamless integration to the WIS technical infrastructure

We are convinced that when you include the above features the WIS laptop is an excellent value for money machine that cannot be beaten on a like-for-like basis in the current market place.

To facilitate your understanding of the options available to you we have prepared a list of FAQs at the following URL (https://goo.gl/HhPQTy) that may answer questions you may have.

The school laptop is open for purchase by all WIS students and represent good value for money, is very well supported and tailored to work with the WIS technical infrastructure.

Should you have any questions about laptops at WIS, please contact Mr Brown (hugh.brown@wis.edu.hk)
