Warranty and Insurance


New Apple iPads are sold in Australia with Apple One-Year Limited Warranty. An optional AppleCare Protection Plan.may be purchased from your Apple reseller; however according to Apple's terms and conditions, these plans do not cover accidental or malicious damage to the device.


As the iPad remains the personal property of the student (or student's family) the College strongly recommends that some form of insurance is considered in order to protect your investment. Including the device under your family's existing insurance policies may be an effective option. Each family should checks the term of their policy with their individual insurer to ensure adequate coverage of the device while it is in use at the College.. Parents need to carefully consider the consequences of accidental damage or loss of the iPad if they choose not to insure their device.

What happens if the iPad is damaged or stolen? 

It is student's duty to be responsible in the upkeep and protection of their devices.Any reported loss or damage to a device while at school will be investigated and dealt within the Colleges’ disciplinary procedures; however, St Patrick's College takes no responsibility for any loss or damage incurred to the device either at school or in transit to and from school and insurance is the responsibility of the family. Families are responsible for the costs of any repairs or replacement of the device. 

St Patrick's College will NOT be responsible for:
  • Personal devices that are broken, damaged or lost while at school or during school-related activities
  • Maintenance or upkeep of any personal device (keeping it charged, installing updates or upgrades, repairs or upkeep).
Check with your preferred insurance company (or even the iPad reseller) about your personal insurance at home and, to and from school, for your iPad.
