Presenting at Melbourne Montessori School

It is highly recommended that all presenters arrive with the equipment they need to present to ensure they can present without any problems
Its best to bring your own laptop, and an HDMI cable, Macs and some newer PC don’t have an HDMI port so an adapter will be required

Melbourne Montessori School will do their best to facilitate your needs and can provide adapters but should not be relied on

Caulfield Hall

Presenting in the Caulfield Hall requires you to connect to the projector via an HDMI wall plate

There are speakers in the projector that produce sound when an HDMI cable is connected, however for much better sound quality we prefer to use the amplifier that you can connect to using a headphone jack. We will provide the cable, you just need to check if your device has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, standard on most devices still (Except Mac)
