Accidental Damage protection or insurance is strongly recommended for all student laptops.  Families/caregivers are advised that student laptops are personal items, therefore not covered under Cabra’s insurance policies in an event they are damaged on site.  Therefore any damage and/or repairs while on site are the responsibility of the family/caregiver.

Cabra LWT Laptop Purchasing Portal

While you’re free to choose your preferred device supplier, Cabra has partnered with Learning with Technologies (LWT) and created a purchase portal to assist families/caregivers with the process. We recommend exploring the selection of Windows and Mac laptops available on the LWT purchasing portal. These devices are designed suitable for students and offer exceptional performance and reliability.

If purchasing a windows device through the LWT portal ‘Cabra ICT’ can coordinate additional support by logging any service requests and managing the warranty process on your behalf. These additional support services are exclusively available for Windows laptops purchased through the LWT portal, offering a technical support service to those families/caregivers.

Please note Apple Mac Devices and privately purchased devices are not covered under these services.

Visit Cabra LWT Laptop Purchase Portal for further details and to explore the available devices.

School Supplied Software

Students are provided a free license for Microsoft O365 (Word, Excel, OneNote, Outlook) upon enrolment. Additionally, subject-specific software (such as Adobe Creative Cloud) for Media, Art, and Music can be installed at no cost on student devices.
