To assist parents with the cost of technology, the Department of Education has a scheme to provide free software to students, so parents should not have to buy software in addition to a device.
Software available to students:
Microsoft office - Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.
Microsoft Office is available to download from the student MS Office 365 Portal.
Creative Cloud Suite - Adobe Acrobat DC, Photoshop, Illustrator and many more...
Adobe products can be obtained by students when they login at https://creativecloud.adobe.com/ and follow the instructions.
Guides explaining this step by step are located in the student’s Sentral Portal
