Setting Up your child's iPad

Use the 2022 BYO iPad - Set Up Checklist​ whilst following Algester's Spark Page - Setting Up Your Child's iPad to ensure your child's iPad is set up ready for learning at Algester State School.

Family Sharing​ makes it easy for up to six people in your family to share each other’s Books and App Store purchases without sharing accounts. Parents are automatically prompted to approve or decline any purchases children make (free or paid) straight from their own device.​

With Screen Time​, you can manage how much time your child is spending on their iPad, set limits for what they can access and ensure they are safe whilst online. With every new iOS update however, always check the Content and Privacy Restrictions outlined in the document have not reverted to factory settings.​




2022​ App lists

Families are responsible to purchase the Core Apps and Year Level Apps for their child. Family sharing allows you to share the purchase of one App across the entire family! Many retail outlets regularly discount the price of Apple iTunes gift cards throughout the year. Gift Cards on Sale is one website that has been designed to easily find the best gift card deals and promotions.
