Today will be the first day of remote learning throughout the state. We understand there are varying degrees of anxiety with this unknown capacity of accessing the internet and your child’s curriculum via compass. Student swill follow their timetable on Compass to access lesson plans for each class at the appropriate time. Teachers will insert a link to WebEx to video conference with the students at the start of each session. We recommend all student to participate and engage with the video conference and adhere to the College video conferencing protocols.
We encourage you to have an active role in your child’s remote learning however we also believe this to be a great opportunity for your child to enhance their ability to self-regulate their learning. We realise for this to be successful we need to ensure we are working together to support your child’s learning and encourage parents/guardians/students to contact us when needed.
As outlined in the remote learning information previously sent to all families, students work will be documented on compass and they will have access to their teacher via WebEx, e-mail and teams chat (Year 7-10 students).
Over the past 4 years our work with Microsoft consultants in implementing 21CLD and O365 in our classrooms has positioned us to make the transition easier to remote learning. However we still anticipate issues and will work with you to find appropriate solutions and reduce stress levels where possible. Please continue to refer the remote learning document, particularly around information related to processes and procedures.
Our office will be open to receive phone-calls and emails from 8:45am- 4pm each school day.
We understand that as information comes from the Department of Education, we will continue to refine and update this document. We are only a phone call or e-mail away and look forward to hearing from you on how the transition to remote learning is going.
