In the event that a student laptop is accidentally damaged away from school or is not working during the holidays, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to submit the computer for repairs. The steps in this process are outlined below:

  • Fill out Incident Report Sheet and Insurance Claim Form and return to your class teacher.
  • Contact Apple Store, Robina (by booking online at apple.com/au/robina and follow the prompts) to book a Genius Bar Reservation for a Repair Quote.
  • Take the laptop to be repaired to Apple Store, Robina (at the agreed time). A technician who will assess the work to be done and issue a quote.
  • Send the Apple Repair Quote to school.
  • If the repairs form part of an insurance claim, the school must receive a payment of $150.00 excess before repairs can be approved.
  • When all paperwork and the $150 excess is received, the student will be issued with a loan computer and the school will authorise Apple to commence repairs.
  • When repairs are completed, Apple Store Robina will contact families to arrange a time to collect hardware (i.e. laptop, charger/adaptor).
  • Student returns ‘loan laptop’ to library

Willful damage and/or neglect are not covered by the insurance policy and parents/guardians will be solely responsible for the cost of repairs and/or replacement of the computer and associated hardware/software. 
Loan computers will not be issued in these circumstances.
