what is connect?

South Halls Head Primary School is pleased to introduce the online environment called Connect.

Connect is a secure online envrionment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools.  Initially we will use this forum for the distribution of Student Reports instead of the paper form we have used previously.

In time this will give our teachers a tool to deliver content to the students via an online classroom.  This means your children will then be able to share with you what they are learning about, submit assignments and discuss issues together online anywhere, anytime.  For you, Connect will provide easy access to information relevant to your child's classes and learning such as assessments, teacher feedback and attendance data.

Schools can use Connect to keep you updated with important information.  Things like upcoming 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.

The Connect Now app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Shortly you will be receiving a letter with forms that need to be completed to update your information, especially your email address.  Following this, you will receive your login details via the email address we have on file for you.
