Remote Learning

Learning From Home

Our students deserve the best remote learning we can offer. That's why we've taken time as a teaching community to carefully consider a rationale for our practices. Our vision is to deliver learning that is equitable, balanced and sustainable.


Our remote learning has been designed to serve the needs of our community.


We offer opportunities for students to learn in front of a screen and away from it. 


Our plan is sustainable and takes into consideration our diverse parent population.

You can read more about our rationale for remote learning here.

See Saw is the key platform being used by Kindergarten, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3. Timetables and activities might be available here. Teachers will provide you with information regarding how to access and log into Seesaw should we go into lockdown again. 


Google Classroom is your child's virtual classroom in Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. Students in these year levels are very familiar with this platform. This is your first port of call. 


We waited, and researched the video conferencing platforms that were being used overseas and here in Australia. We're glad we did! The safety of our students is important to us. Students, families and teachers will be able to use Microsoft Teams to communicate with one another in a secure environment.
