At Sheoak Grove Primary School we will use a range of ways to communicate with our parent community. These will include:
- Our website
- Social media
- Fortnightly newsletters
- Parent assemblies
- Information sessions
However, once the 2020 school year commences we will predominately use the Education Department’s Connect platform. Connect is a learning, support and communications platform developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. You can view a short video about connect here:
Each parent will be given their own secure login to Connect. Connect is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe. As well as being able to log into Connect on any internet-connected device, you may also receive notices from Connect that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification on your phone. A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store and will let you receive Connect notices as push notifications.
If you have multiple children, you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools.
When you log into Connect you will be able to see information specific to your own children.
In February 2020 parents of students enrolled at Sheoak Grove Primary School will receive information about how to register for Connect along with login details. Parents will also be invited to parent information sessions about Connect and how it will be used at Sheoak Grove.
We hope that you’ll enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way for you to stay in touch with your child’s school journey.
