Halls Head Primary School uses CONNECT to keep the whole school community up to date with important information. For example, communication regarding up-coming 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. As CONNECT is further developed, increased functionalities will enable further information sharing and communication between the school and home. Our Halls Head Primary CONNECT School Space site also houses a library of information, for example; parent handbooks, school policies, newsletters and forms.
CONNECT is a secure online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. Connect functionality lends itself to information relevant to your child such as assessments, student reports, and attendance data. It provides a means of secure storage and retrieval of student documents such as student reports for parents over a long period of time, rather than relying on email storage. If you have multiple children, you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools. In the future this platform may enable your children to be able to share with you what they are learning about in the classroom.
How will parents access CONNECT?
Once you have completed your child’s enrolment, you will receive secure login information to register via the email address we have on file for you. The registration email will be from firstname.lastname@example.org and will contain your confidentially issued, unique Connect user name and password for secure login. The email will also contain a link to register.
If you have recently changed your email address or are having issues registering or logging in please let us know by phoning 9584 6900 or emailing email@example.com.
CONNECT is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe. As well as being able to login to CONNECT on any internet-enabled device, you may also receive notices from CONNECT that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification on your phone.
