Remote Learning

Dear Parents and carers,

Currently being updated...

This page has been created to support parents and carers as we move to remote learning. During this time parents are asked to take on a supportive role while the teachers plan and facilitate curriculum delivery. It includes information about which platforms are used, 'how to' guides, and some tips and suggestions to promote learning at home. In the first instance, students have been given a pack to take home that can be utilised in the first week while the remote learning platforms, timetables and logisitics are finalised.

Our online remote learning tools are based on utilising three main tools: Zoom meetings K-6, SeeSaw for Kinder to Year 2 students, and Google Classrooms for Year 3 to Year 6 students. Below is information to help parents become familiar with Zoom, SeeSaw and Google Classroom, some helpful information in regards to learning at home and links to resources and tools to assist parents and students in these extraordinary circumstances. 

Setting Up Learning From Home

Teacher/Parent/Student Communication
Please consider that remote teaching will place higher demands on teachers and their ability to respond to emails in a timely manner will be limited. If they need to comunicate with you they may call (as an unknown caller) or reach out via email.
All teacher-student communication will occur through either Seesaw or Google Classroom and teachers will provide designated times for answering student questions.

Supporting your children

With such a greater emphasis on online learning, the website for the Office of the eSafety Commissioner is a valuable source of information for adults and children. We suggest taking the time to look through the resources across the whole site, but highly recommend these two specific sections in relation to supporting home learning:

Student links and activities

We have added a Learning Resources section to our school website with links for online learning. Many of these require students to log in with some form of credentials. In general, students' school Google accounts allow this and are a safe way for students to access web-based content. There is an array of literacy and numeracy-based resources for Kinder to Year 6, as well as resources spanning the curriculum and sites for those with specific and special interests. Student passwords can be changed using this tool.

Formative Assessment and Feedback

Formative Assessment: refers to a wide variety of methods that teachers use to conduct in-process evaluations of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson, unit, or course.www.edglossary.org
Remote Learning will involve communication between teachers/parents/students on student achievement and progress in order to continue to plan meaningful lessons. This is why we ask that parents and carers provide simple feedback about how their child progressed through the set tasks. This will most likely look like a sort of multiple choice feedback scale. Teachers will provide this via their learning platform.
