This term, Year 5 / 6 students are able to bring their devices to school from week two. Your teachers would have been in touch with you about when they would like your child to bring it in.
Year 3 / 4 students are able to bring their devices from next week, week three. Your child's teacher should also let you know when they would like devices brought into school.
Over these first few weeks classes will work on their routines and practices for looking after and using computers responsibly, following our ORCA values.
If your child is coming into year 3 this year, you will need to sight and sign the ORCA eLearning Agreement. Your child will be revisiting these with their classroom teacher at all levels from Year 3 to Year 6.
Please discuss this with your child and sign a copy and return it to your child's class teacher.
