It has been a difficult week and we’d like to thank all the parents and students for their effort to work with us. All students should have some work to do for every subject in Google Classroom. Staff will continue to update the classrooms with work and will communicate with students via this platform.
Most parents should have been invited to google classroom allowing parents to get a summary of their students’ work emailed to them daily or weekly. We recommend you get your students to show you’re their google classroom and look at the stream or the classwork tab at the page. You will need to do this for each subject.
Students can access Google Classroom from their student portal ( https://portal.det.nsw.edu.au/ ) or going directly to ( https://classroom.google.com/ ). Either way, they will log in with their student email address (eg ) and their departmental password. If your student has lost their password please contact the school to have it reset.
Please ask your students to remain in contact with their teachers using Google Classroom to reply to teacher messages, post questions, and upload their work. It is also suggested that students try to stick to their normal timetable as teachers will try to be active, answering questions, in their Google Classrooms during their normal timetabled periods.
Lastly, if your student is receiving hard copies of work due to lack of Internet or computer access, this work should be delivered/sent out on Monday. Unfortunately we have a large number or students requiring paper work and our office staff have been over run. If students are able to access Google Classroom, even using their phone (there is a Google Classroom app available for Android and iOS), then we suggest getting started with work using that method (and their normal school book or paper) while hard copies are sent home.
