LOCKDOWN PERIOD FEBRUARY 13-17, 2021
Teaching and Learning Information for Students
- We know that there will be some students who cannot access the internet. The library will be open each day from 8.30 AM -3.35 PM if you need to come in and get online in your classes or access resources.
- If you cannot come in, please try to send an email to your teachers to let them know you are unable to get online. You can also ring the college on 5443 1222 after 8.30 am on Monday.
Any SACs that were scheduled for next week will be moved to week 5 and your teacher will provide you with more information about this.
Practical Classes including VET
- These cannot be conducted onsite so you will undertake your theory work in these classes.
- If you have an offsite VET class your work will be posted on the Compass subject page and emailed to you
Camps/Excursions for next week
These have been cancelled and will hopefully occur later in the term.
Classes and Advisor Meetings
- These will run online according to your usual timetable.
- A Google Meet link will be available for each of your classes in the Lesson Plan or notes section of the class.
- You must use the Google Meet link to get online at the start of the class and a roll will be marked. Your teacher is likely to remain online for the entire class time to support you if you need it.
- The resources you need to complete work and stay up to date across the three days can be accessed online through the ‘Lesson Plan’ and ‘Resources’ and ‘Learning tasks’ tabs on Compass. This includes online resources that may be available for any subject.
- Each of your teachers will have uploaded lesson plans onto Compass and any tasks that you need to complete and you may be required to submit these via Compass.
- DET requires us to keep a record of attendance so rolls will be marked for all classes and for Monday’s advisor meeting.
- Study Centre and tutor groups including MYLNS will be cancelled for the three days.
A member of the ICT team will be available across the three days to support students if you need it.
Things to remember when you are online:
- Turn on your video even if it is just at the start of the class as this makes it much easier for your teacher to help you
- When you are working on any video platform, you are allowing people to see into your home or bedroom. You should always be mindful of what is visible to others you are online. It is good practice to inform others in the home when they are connecting with people externally, so they too have their privacy respected.
- Students are expected to follow the college dress code; that is, students must not wear anything that could be offensive to others. Students should dress as they would for a face-to-face class when engaging in any online lesson.
- Remember that information from, or image of, any staff member or student must never be transmitted to another person or platform.
Student Engagement and Wellbeing Information for Students
Supervision of vulnerable students
Supervision will be provided for students who are vulnerable and cannot be left alone or supervised at home; for students without internet; and for the children of essential workers who cannot be left alone. This will occur in the college library. Students must not attend if they are unwell. Please note that classroom teachers will not be supervising and students who attend will be following a remote learning program.
Collection of essential materials
If a student needs to collect any essential educational materials from the college that cannot wait until Thursday, they are to do this by presenting at the college library from 8.30 am each morning. Students are not to enter any other building without permission.
If any student requires Wellbeing support during the lockdown period, they should email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our Wellbeing Team will make contact as soon as possible.
