We find ourselves in another lockdown and so, as a school community we are required to continue to develop our children’s learning through distance learning. This year we are lucky to have set up Google Classroom for all students who wish to avail of it, as a two way learning platform .Students ,teachers and parents alike, are learning how to use this platform together so, we will take it in baby steps and remember we are always here to assist you in any way we can.
Before, allowing your child to have access to their google classroom ,please have a discussion about how to use this platform appropriately .It is a platform for learning and is not to be used as a social platform. Remind your child that anything they write in these settings, it is for everyone to see and read and is permanent, even when deleted . The school reserves the right to delete any participant that is using the platform inappropriately or not for the means in which it is intended for .
Please keep your child’s password safe and check regularly what they are doing on it.
