Connect has been rolled out to students, parents/carers and staff in our school. Connect is a learning, support and communications platform developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents/carers in public schools.
Check out the short video clip on Connect below:
How will parents access Connect?
Each parent will be given their own secure login to Connect. Connect is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe. As well as being able to log into Connect on any internet-connected device, you may also receive notices from Connect that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification on your phone. A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store and will let you receive Connect notices as push notifications.
If you have multiple children, you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools.
When you log into Connect you will be able to see information specific to your own child/ren.
Examples of what information you can access in Connect:
• Whole school or class notifications
• Classroom learning activities and resources
• Notifications from individual teachers
• Attendance records
• Discussions and Submissions (if used by the teacher)
• Assessments and marks
Parents/carers will receive an email with their login details. If this hasn’t occurred yet, please contact Pinjarra SHS.
We hope that you enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way for you to stay in touch with your child’s school journey.
