Secondhand Textbooks

The College is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to be able to recycle their textbooks and other student resources, as such we utilise the services provided by Sustainable School Shop for second-hand textbook and equipment trading.

Please read information regarding the Bring Your Own Device program at Kennedy.

List of Recommended Devices:

Whilst the College does not endorse any particular device, we regularly get asked for suggestions on devices that are suitable for use at the College. Based on the BYO program, and our experience with student support, we have seen the following devices used successfully at the College:

It is imperative that you check before purchasing any device that meets the College's minimum requirements. The above devices are provided as guidelines and you should be able to get a better price if you shop around, especially during sales. However, there is a range of devices at a variety of prices that are suitable.

Please note: Licensed copies of all required software applications will be provided for students to install as necessary - this includes Microsoft Office.

Please note that:
Sizing in uniform shops often does not follow standard sizing, so it is always best for students to try on garments before purchasing. This is especially important for new students as it ensures you get the right size first time. New students are advised to book a uniform fitting.

Payment methods

Beedawong utilises cashless payments with SmartRider cards, which display the student photo, able to be used at the cafeteria in place of cash to purchase a range of healthy snacks, lunches and drinks.

Students can top up their cafeteria credit on their SmartRider before school or during the latter part of the lunch break (1.15 -1.30pm). If parents prefer to come in and personally upload cafeteria credit, they are welcome to do this any time between 7.30am and 2.00pm. Credit added to the SmartRider at the cafeteria will only be available to put towards purchases in the cafeteria. Cash is the only form of payment that may be used for credit top-up.

Please note that SmartRiders without a student photo will not be accepted due to security restrictions.

Eftpos facilities are available for staff, students and parents to purchase items. The minimum purchase is $2 and only the card owner can make purchases on their card.

Cash will continue to be accepted at Beedawong.
