Connect is the software our school has chosen to communicate with students and parents. Connect is a secure online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. It gives our teachers a tool to deliver content to the students via an online classroom. This means your children will are 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.
Schools can use Connect to keep you updated with important information. Things like up-coming 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. Download Connect Now from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Once Parents are registered for Connect they are emailed a secure login information to Connect via the email address we have on file for the “family mail marker”. NB: The “family mail marker” is the member/s of a family who receives mail from the school including accounts, your child’s reports and other official communication. Keeping us up to date on all changes to phone numbers, postal addresses etc is very important anyway.
