COVID-19 Remote Learning Plan

In response to the unprecedented circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Corpus Christi ̨aƬSearch has developed a remote learning strategy to ensure your child continues to receive the best possible education. Through our strong ICT network and established systems, we have the opportunity to utilise online tools for communication and educational delivery.

By following our remote learning plan, your child will have access to subject content and teacher instructions for each of their curriculum subjects every day. Our main platforms for remote learning are:

&Բ;•&Բ;&Բ; SEQTA Your child should use SEQTA to find instructions and content for each of their daily lessons. Assessment data will also continue to be updated accordingly by their class teacher.

•&Բ;&Բ; Teams Your child is already part of a Teams channel for each of their curriculum classes. Teams should be used by your child as a communications tool to check in with their teachers each lesson.

•&Բ;&Բ; OneNote It is recommended that your child use OneNote to organise and save work they have completed at home in a class notebook. This may have already been set up by their class teacher.

•&Բ;&Բ; SeeSaw Primary School students can send and receive work for their classes. This will already be setup by the class teacher.

Remote Learning FAQs

Is my child still expected to wear school uniform?

No, students are not required to wear the ̨aƬSearch uniform during this time – however, it is highly recommended that students wear the ̨aƬSearch House shirt or ̨aƬSearch Sport shirt during remote learning video calls. The normal expectations and standards as per the ̨aƬSearch apply.

 

What if my child is sick?

Attendance will be recorded by the teacher in SEQTA as normal. If your child is sick, you should notify the ̨aƬSearch by email or SMS (not by telephone).

 

How will my child know if their teacher is absent?

Teachers will notify students of their absence on SEQTA before 8:00am each school day to let them know that the Teams Video Call will be cancelled. Teachers will still provide learning materials and instructions for the lesson as per usual.

Will my child still complete regular assessments?

Students may be required to complete assessments online. Some assessments might be altered to suit online learning.

How do I view my child’s Course Outlines?

Accessing the Course Outlines can be done through SEQTA Engage. Instructions on how to do this can be found

What if I have a poor internet connection?

Your home internet connection cannot be improved by the ̨aƬSearch but a few items that may help are:
