School Computer Access:

  • Students would have be given a network account name and password . Look after this password and share with no one. This password will give students access to all computer's in the school.
  • These credentials work with the Dunstan-BYOD wireless ssid.
  • Appendend @dunstan.school.nz and students can login to their Dunstan Gmail and Google Drive accounts.
  • The password also works with Ultranet
  • File all data in your Documents or other folders keeping your Desktop clear. The less on your Desktop the quicker your computer will login to your Network Home Folders. This is especially true for bigger files created in apps like photoshop.
  • The school laptops have three web browser's loaded, Google Chrome, Firefox and Apple's Safari.If a wesite is misbehaving or won't work as expected, try one of the other browsers. Although all browsers are good some go better on particular sites.
  • The Force Quit application is under the Apple Menu, If a program hangs use this to force quit it. A problem exist with Google Chrome on logoff so you can use this to quickly quit the App before Logoff.
