Remote Learning

In response to the School's campus closure on Tuesday 17 March 2020, Kinross Wolaroi School has implemented a comprehensive remote learning platform to support the continued education of its students during periods of disruption.

This page will provide links and information for parents and students on KWS remote learning.

Remote learning has now commenced for all KWS students. Detailed instructions and advice have been provided to both students and parents to guide them in their new learning environment.

With all students commencing their online learning journey at the same time, we expect that there may be an increased number of enquiries to our Helpdesk - please be patient if there is a delay in responding to your questions in these early days of operation.

Please do not call Reception regarding any problems you encounter. Issues should be logged via the email below. Encourage your children to spend some time trying to solve any issues themselves before asking our technicians for assistance. A troubleshooting document will be provided to all users.

Should you encounter issues that can't be resolved, please email servicedesk@kws.nsw.edu.au

 


 

Staying safe online

As we move to remote learning in response to COVID-19, it is important to understand how to protect yourself and your family online. The eSafety Commissioner's website has some great advice on how to tame the technology. It is recommended reading for all parents:

Our Wellbeing Team have also pulled together some cyber safety tips for parents and students to assist when using technology and online platforms for remote learning:
