Remote Learning at Star

From the beginning of Term 2, the College commenced remote delivery of learning and assessment. There is no doubt that we are living in unprecedented times and that what we are required to do now is different and extraordinary. There is also no doubt that the scenarios we are facing change on a daily basis.

Delivery of the curriculum

Our normal teaching and learning program, like that of most schools, is not designed for remote learning, and the College has put in place contingencies to maintain continuity in student learning and to ensure the health and safety of the whole community.

Further information about the delivery of an online curriculum is outlined in the clickable link below:

In this unprecedented time, uppermost in our decision making is to support the learning of our students. The majority of our student community have been using the Google Classroom platform for some time and will be well equipped for the shift to remote delivery.

Information technology support will be available to students who are experiencing issues with connectivity through the IT Helpdesk. 

Mentor teachers will be in touch with students regularly and classroom teachers will communicate content using a variety of applications via Google Classroom.

Within the remote learning environment, teachers will regularly review and refine curriculum plans. The students will receive clear notification of any changes in due dates or task expectations in a timely manner.  

The College has created downloadable Assessment Continuity Plans for both Years 7 – 11 students and Unit 3/4 students outlining all the requirements of assessment and Outcomes.

For the completion of remote assessment tasks, students should:

  • be able to access a secure and quiet place to complete assessments
  • notify the household that they are sitting an assessment and are not to be interrupted
  • ensure that their laptop is fully charged and they have a stable internet connection
  • ensure that the work submitted is their own. The rules related to the authenticity of work remain the same as in-school assessments.

Star of the Sea College will continue to support our students in the learning and wellbeing, as we navigate this changing landscape.
