BYOD is a compulsory program for all students to participate in. All students must bring a compatible device that meets the requirements of our Technical Specification. All devices must be commissioned by a member of staff and display a GHS Commissioned sticker.

Commissioning Process

All students are to download the necessary software as instructed PRIOR to commissioning their device. All of the software (Microsoft, Adobe and the Anti Virus Software) are free as provided by the Department of Education. If you are experiencing problems with downloading the software, please see the TSO ASAP. If you do not seek assistance immediately, it is more difficult to correct your problem.

ONLY approved devices will be commissioned. Mobile Phones are NOT an accepted device and are NOT to be used in the classroom.


The TSO is located in the Library (near the Learning Centre). If you can not find the TSO and your matter is urgent please see Mr Lewis or Mr Nichols (Staffroom East). All Student Agreement Forms, Equity Forms, Technical Specifications can be found outside the TSO office. 

I can not connect to the Internet

Glenwood High School is an ET4L school. This means you must add @detnsw after your name every name you log in. Additionally, you must log on to at the beginning of each day. If the Internet is still not working, please RESET your machine (turn it off and turn it back on). This allows your computer to update. If there is still a problem, please see the TSO. If you are new to the school, you can go to the TSO to obtain a how to guide.
