Tuesday March 24th - Student FAQs

Is school cancelled?
School is not cancelled or closed. How we do school will be changing for a while. You will be able to access the learning content for each of your subjects via Google classroom and you and your class will meet with your teacher via Google Meet. Your teacher will send you links for Google Meet via each of your google classrooms.


How will we do school from home?
You will continue to access your learning and support from your teachers via Google Classroom and Google Meet. It will not be the same as coming to class very day. You will need to take responsibility for your own learning and access content and tasks online.

When will we get to come back to school? How long are we at home for?
From now until 9 April you will be able to access all your classes via google classroom. From 10 April until 24 April you will be on school holidays. When you are on school holidays, you will not need to access classwork via google classroom.
At this stage we do not know how long we will need to run school via google classroom. Please know we will tell you as soon as we know.


How do we do subjects like PE and woodwork (art/metal work/photography, drama etc)?
It is very understandable that you are curious as to how you will participate in subjects that are more practical. In particular, subjects that require you to use equipment that you may not have at home.
At this stage we do not have a simple answer. We are looking at what we may be able to do to support your learning in these areas.

If it’s school holidays, do I need to log on to google classroom and do work?
When it is school holiday time – you will be on school holidays. Remember school holiday for the end of term 1 are from 10 April to 24 April.


How do I ask for help if I don’t understand something?
If you are not sure about something and need to talk to your teacher you could:
* Ask the teacher when the class meets via Google Meet
Or
* Message your teacher through Google classroom. Your teacher will endeavour to answer your message as quickly as possible. But please be aware that teachers are adjusting to a new way of teaching, just like you are adjusting to a new way of learning. It may take them a day or two to respond to you.
