At Moruya High School, we try to make sure all of the software we use is freely available and multi-platform (Windows, Mac OS, and Linux). The only exceptoins to this are Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Cloud. However, all students within the NSW Public Education system are able to register at https://nsw-students.onthehub.com/ and download commercial software from Microsoft (Office and Windows) and Adobe (Creative Cloud) for free.

Below is a list of other software we use.
