What is Connect?
By now you’ve probably heard about the introduction of the online environment called Connect in WA schools.
This article is about how Connect will be used in our school. Connect is a secure online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. It will give our teachers a tool to deliver content to the students via an online classroom. This means your children will be able to share with you what they are learning. For you, Connect provides easy access to information relevant to your child’s classes and learning such as pictures and information about the class learning program for each term.Class teachers can use Connect to keep you updated with important information, however Connect will not replace notes home at this stage. 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.
You will soon receive secure login information to Connect via the email address we have on file for you. If you have recently changed your email address please let us know by phoning 9312 4800 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update our details.
