Software available for ALL NSWDEC students on their personal devices at no cost!

The New South Wales Department of Education & Communities has offered its students the ability to download some key software to support the NSW DEC BYOD policy. 
This software has been made available to all school students. 
This software includes Microsoft Office 2013 and  Adobe Creative Suite 6.

Parents will need to work with their students to download this software.
Students need to go through their Student portal.
All of our students (except kinders) can show you how to get to their portal
To get to their student portal at home it would help if they start with the Sandy Beach Public School Home Page. Students then go to the Our Learning Centres tab.

Students can then click on the student portal link and follow the instructions in the video.

Unfortunately Microsoft Office Picture Manager does not come with 2013 but you can access it by following the instructions at
