Free Software

As part of BYOD it is important that your device is ready for learning. Just like preparing your exercise books and textbooks, you will need to prepare software in advance.

All students are provided with free software to support their learning at school at https://nsw-students.onthehub.com


Students will need to use their
@education.nsw.gov.au student email address to register on their first visit. To register, click on the “Sign In” link at the top of the page and then click on the REGISTER button. A verification email will be sent to your NSW DoE email address. To complete the registration please select the link provided in the email.

You may then browse the catalogue and choose from the following software:

It is recommended that you install:

  • Microsoft Office 2016
  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • A modern web browser such as Google Chrome

In addition to installing the above software, students also have access to Google Apps (Google Drive, Docs, Slides and Sheets)  and Microsoft Office 365 (OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for cloud storage and collaboration. This is the recommended way to create and save files as students can easily access them from any device, at any time.
