Supporting students from home
Good Afternoon Families,
It was lovely to welcome a small number of students to our campus this morning. We thank you for your partnership in our students’ learning for the remainder of term.
For the next two weeks:
- Content and tasks for all Term 1 classes is currently available through your child’s Canvas account
- Additional online learning resources are available https://www.education.tas.gov.au/parents-carers/learning-at-home/
- Students at school continue with their Term 1 class learning
- Teachers are planning for face-to-face and online learning delivery Term 2
Here are two documents that might further support you at home. The first document is information about accessing the portals used by students at school, which may also be accessed at home. The second is a simple starting point for online resources and could be used alongside the DoE’s learn at home resources and students’ CANVAS resources.
