At Orelia Primary School we use a range of tools to communicate with our school community. These include our school website, Connect, Social media, newsletters, assemblies and family engagement meetings.
Our main communication tool with our families is The Department of Education’s Connect platform. This is a learning, support and communication tool developed by the department for staff, students and parents in public schools. All parents will be supplied with their unique login details to access their child’s Connect class page, specialist subject areas and Connect also enables parents to communicate with staff directly. Whole school communication will also be sent out via the Connect platform.
Please view a short video about Connect here:
A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or from Google Play and this will allow you to receive Connect notices as push notifications.
If parents have multiple children, they only need one login – even if their children attend different public schools. When logging in to Connect parents will be able to see information specific to their own child/ren such as:
- the classes in which their children are engaged
- class calendars
- week by week attendance information
- notices from classes that automatically generate an email notification to the parents
Please view the below Connect information flyers and guides
Connect is a wonderful whole school communication tool and it is an exciting way for parents to stay in touch with your child’s learning journey here at Orelia Primary School.
