Corpus Christi College has partnered with Winthrop Australia in offering an iPad One-to-One Program available to students for 2017.
Your order will be delivered to your home address after payment is received. If no one is home to receive the goods, instructions will be left to collect from your local Australia Post Office / Newsagency. Delivery times are dictated by stock levels which can be particularly difficult around the holiday period.
Note that accessories will be delivered separately to your iPad.
All payments must be finalised before Winthrop can place your order with suppliers.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING DELAYS IN ORDERS DUE TO UNEXPECTED LOW STOCK LEVELS IN AUSTRALIA. DEVICES ORDERED FROM MID-JANUARY MAY NOT ARRIVE UNTIL EARLY FEBRUARY.
Method 1: College preferred supplier
We have worked to develop a relationship with a local Apple Channel Partner to set a bulk order price. Purchasing through this method will have the added advantage of taking part in the Device Enrolment Program (DEP) which will mean that your iPad will be configured for WiFi and email, download the necessary apps and automatically setup for school once your child unboxes their device. It also means we can quickly restore your child's device in the event of upgrade, damage or loss. This method also has the benefit that you will not be required to attend the iPad Orientation sessions described method 2.
Method 2: Your choice of retailer
If you wish to purchase from a local retail store you are more than welcome to. However, the requirement will be that you book and attend (with your student) a 2 hour iPad Orientation session in the week of January 20th - 24th to configure your son's or daughter's iPad.
These sessions have been in place for a number of years.
To ensure that your son or daughter is able to participate in all learning activities and install the necessary applications for their classes we strongly recommend the following minimum requirements for the device which you purchase.
- iPad Air (32GB) WiFi ONLY
iPad Mini is not suitable and Cellular device is not required. Upgrade to iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7" or iPad Pro 12.7" at parents discretion.

To ensure your device is protected we also recommend that you purchase a hard wearing case, consider a protection plan and purchase the compulsory applications. The College recommends the following:
- STM Dux Case - or alternative case
- AppleCare+ - AppleCare Protection Plan provides hardware coverage directly from Apple and includes up to two incidental damage coverage, each subject to a $65 service fee (see below)
- $50 iTunes Gift Card - used to purchase compulsory Apps (e.g. Explain Everything, Popplet and Book Creator)
** Other accessories e.g. Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard can be purchased at parents discretion.
