By now you have probably heard others in our school community talking about the introduction of the online environment called Connect.
In case you were unable to attend the information sessions or have missed the discussion around Connect use in our school, here is a run-down about it.
Connect is a secure online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. It will give our teachers a tool to deliver content to the students via an online classroom. This means your children will be able to share with you what they are learning about, submit assignments and discuss issues together online anywhere, anytime. For you, Connect provides easy access to information relevant to your child’s classes and learning such as assessments, teacher feedback and attendance data.
We will use Connect to keep you updated with important information. Notices for things like upcoming events, excursions, classroom activities, photos and stories can be sent to you via email or, if you prefer, via a push notification on your phone.
