Connect is a secure, web based communication system developed and maintained by the Department of Education. It provides teachers, students and parents with secure access to a collaborative online learning environment via the internet.
Watch this short video for more information.
South Perth Primary School is using Connect to distribute information to parents of current students and not the general public. This includes:
- a library containing school newsletters, permission slips and information for incursions and excursions
- a messaging function for the Principal, Deputies and teaching staff to send messages and notes to individual parents, parents of classes, year groups or the whole school. It is envisaged that this will eventually replace all of the printed notes distributed to the students to take home
- the messaging function is also for teachers to communicate to their class groups. This could be about homework, class activities, reminders, requests for class parent help, photos of excursions and more
- online discussions amongst the school community
Connect is the vehicle for parents to receive the fortnightly school newsletter, and the free ‘Connect Now’ app for smartphone/tablet is an immediate and simple way for parents to receive and view all notices as well as the newsletter.
Connect allows teachers to provide general class information to you about the teaching and learning activities that his/her class are undertaking. The service is being further developed to allow more flexible communication between parents and teachers as well as providing personalised information about your child’s learning activities and progress.
