LearnLink Office 365 – Student Access

Earlier in the year (Term 1), information was sent home regarding the upcoming upgrade to the existing DECD LearnLink email services. Part of this upgrade was providing access to a tailored package of Microsoft Office 2016 for all South Australian school students (Grades 3-12). This allows for downloads on multiple personal devices per student.

To have access, students must have returned a signed agreement to their teacher. If you require another agreement, please collect one from the front office.

Attached below are step-by-step instructions on how to access these services.

Parent information session – Follow up resources

On Wednesday 10th May, we had a parent information session titled, “The effects of food on children’s behaviour and learning”. This was organised by the Education Sub-Committee, a very involved and committed group of parents looking to provide further learning opportunities to our school community.

The workshop was presented by Natalie Parletta and we had a great turn out for a cold night! It was an intriguing presentation and many attendees have requested further information.

Attached below are some of the web links provided by Natalie along with a PDF version of her presentation on the night. This has all been provided with Natalie’s consent.
