VIDEO MESSAGE: Principal Mr Simon Harvey offers his support and reassurance to students as Remote Learning begins at St Norbert College

Remote Learning

Depending on the year level of the students, this will require a different approach and have different expectations for teachers, parents and students. The greatest expectations be across Years 10 – 12 where the academic demands are higher and the immediate impact upon future pathways most significant. Students in Years 7 – 9 will still be required to complete learning tasks set by their teacher however, the time requirement for these tasks would be less than for students in Years 10 – 12.  This is explained in full in a Letter to Parents dated 26 March.

Ideas for parents
  • Set up a learning space.
  • Think about the technology that will be needed.
  • Create a structure.
  • Get to know what your child should know.
  • Be around to help but don’t get in the way.
  • Read College communications so you are clear about the way the school will continue to support its students.
  • Be inventive about ways to keep connected with friends and peers.
