Buying an iPad

 St Monica’s does not recommend a store from which to purchase your device. However, some things to consider when purchasing an iPad are:

The Apple Store

Due to the school purchasing through Apple at the Canberra Centre, Apple offers special iPad and Mac pricing for students attending our school.  This special pricing is available for purchases made at Apple Stores, through our school’s customised online store or via the Apple contact centre. If you are purchasing in-store or over the phone just let the Specialist know our school’s name. Finance options are also available for purchases if you are purchasing at an Apple Store or online.

Refer to the Apple Purchasing Portal created for St Monica’s via the online link  to purchase the Apple solution we’ve selected for your student’s use in the classroom.   The custom page ensures that you’re buying the device your student needs, and it offers all the same great features of the regular Apple Online Store, like free delivery.  Familaies can also  Apple Store, or call 133-622 to purchase through our contact centre.  To find your local Apple store visit


Learning and support

The Apple Store is a great place to learn about, try and buy Apple products for education. Apple Specialists are on hand to help you and your student get to know your new Apple device, and with Personal Setup they can help get new devices up and running before you leave the store. 

You and your students can join one of the daily in-store workshops to learn a new skill, and your student can get learning and creating at one of the Apple Camp or Field Trip events. Visit to find an Apple Store near you and view the schedule.

Apple can also provide support with everything related to your new Apple purchase — from using iPad to troubleshooting iTunes.  You can get support by phone, email or online chat or set up a repair or Genius Bar reservation at
