Remote Learning

Learning anywhere, anytime!

The St Anne's Central School Learning Hub is a resource for families to support their child in continuing their educational journey outside the classroom.
Our online remote learning tools are based on utilising Google Classrooms and Google Meet. Below is information to help parents become familiar with Google Classroom, some helpful information in regards to learning at home and links to resources and tools to assist parents and students in these extraordinary circumstances.

Setting up learning from home

The NSW Department of Education has created a simple and concise advice page for parents and carers to help facilitate learning at home. Covering key considerations, setting up learning spaces, wellbeing, communication and technology management, the site is a rich resource for parents and carers who may be feeling unsure about what they can do at home.

Supporting your children

With such a greater emphasis on online learning, the website for the Office of the eSafety Commissioner is a valuable source of information for adults and children. We suggest taking the time to look through the resources across the whole site, but highly recommend these two specific sections in relation to supporting home learning:

Technical support for students and parents

If you have any issues or questions about some of the web-based resources for remote learning, we will be available to answer questions via the office email. Please email office.stannes@cg.catholic.edu.au if you have any questions, queries or issues relating to access to learning from home.


Google Classroom information for Parents

Despite this being an instructional video made for students in the United States, it perfectly demonstrates the basics of Google Classrooms for parent's information. There is one slight caveat here, though: when signing in with a student's credentials, you might get asked to enter the details again on a page that looks a little like this:

The username (minus the '@cgstudents.catholic.edu.au') and password have to be entered again, but you also need to select 'Canberra-Goulburn' from the drop-down section (circled in red) to sign in again.

It might be a good idea to save the login credentials so that students do not have to keep signing into their accounts. Keep in mind though that if multiple children are using the same computer each day, this might not be such a great idea.

Other FYI
