All Queensland state school students can download free copies of the latest Microsoft Office to their personal home computers and mobile devices. Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you are a Queensland state school student. Students will need to use their school email address to sign in.
For PC and Mac, visit Office Portal, login using your school email address, click through to install and follow the onscreen process.

Teams for Education puts classes, subject materials, assignments,
files, and collaboration all in one place. It affords interactions and
engagements with the young minds that builds strong connections, while
the school continues to create an inclusive online learning environment.
First introduced in 2019, OneDrive is an online data storage
location dedicated and secured for Education Queensland schools. OneDrive
allows students to save their files securely in the Microsoft cloud
infrastructure. Students can access their data using any device, giving
unprecedented flexibility to complete learning tasks as they move between
school and home.
MacGregor SHS has purchased licenses for Adobe Creative Cloud software. Some of our subjects require this suite of applications. Teachers will inform students if they need to install this software onto their laptop. Detailed instructions are located on MACGlink to install relevant software for your subjects. Do not purchase the products during the installation.
In order to reduce the weight of student's bags, the school
is trialling electronic textbooks (eTexts) using ReadCloud.
This innovation will be a significant improvement in your student's learning
experience. We will introduce the eTexts in a staged fashion so that we do not
overwhelm our staff and students.
The MacGregor IT support team are available at TechConnect in F Block to answer any BYOx questions and to assist with software and connection problems. Don't hesitate to visit if you need assistance or advice.
