Online Learning

Google Classroom and Seesaw

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for returning the consent forms to engage with Google Classroom and Seesaw. We are delighted to announce that we are progressing very well in the setting up of these educational platforms.

Over the coming weeks we will all be engaging with Seesaw. The senior classes (3rd to 6th) will also engage with Google Classroom, as deemed necessary by their class teacher. 

Important details to note:

1. Your child should be supervised every time they engage with online learning.

2. Your consent for a Google account only allows them access to Seesaw and Google classroom, they will not have an active email address.

3. It is easier to use a phone or tablet for Seesaw as the children will mostly use it to upload a photo of homework etc.

1.     Go to classroom.google.com/

2.     Here you will be asked to sign into your Google Account. (Please Note: Parents may have Gmail accounts already signed in on the device. Click on use another account. It is important to make sure that you sign in with your new Powerstown account.)
