The College IT Technicians can provide support for software related issues (viruses, problematic software) to all devices.

Support for hardware issues can only be provided to devices purchased via the College partner Edunet. College technicians will diagnose devices and request required repairs from Edunet.

BYO devices will need to be taken back to the manufacturer or place of purchase for repair and warranty claims.
The College Technicians cannot fix any hardware related issues, they need to be logged with the manufacturer.

There is no need to purchase Microsoft Office, students are provided a license with their School accounts.


All laptops purchased from our partner Edunet included 3-years of on-site Warranty (excl. Apple) that covers your device in the event of a failure or manufacturing defect.

Optionally, 3-years of insurance from iBroker can be added at time of purchase. The optional insurance policy covers your device for a variety of events including liquid damage, accidental physical damage, and loss/theft. Pricing of this insurance package is comparable to the repair of 1 damaged screen. You can make claims up to twice the value of the device per year.

For full details of Insurance coverage please see the below document from the insurer iBroker.

Apple devices can be optioned with 3-years of AppleCare+. This service provides both warranty and insurance in one package.

The Australian Government has introduced new laws that affect the sale of add-on insurance products at the point of sale to consumers. This law mandates a 5-day cooling off period before insurance can be sold for a device. If interested in AppleCare+, be sure to add it to your cart and Edunet will contact you after 5-days to confirm your purchase.


Purchasing accessories for your device is also available through Dromana College. Students misplace their charger, bag or any other accessory, the school has signed up for the Edunet Accessories Portal to be available for parents and students to order a replacement. It will be delivered to the school and a text message can be arranged once delivery has been complete.
