During the national lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, we implemented Google Classroom usage as a way of connecting with children via the internet. The program allows us to produce and grade assignments, streamline homework, boost collaboration, and foster communication through messaging, video lessons and meet ups. This has proved to be such a valuable tool, that we still make use of it now that schools are open again.
Google Classroom email addresses and passwords are available from your child’s class teacher and the office if you have misplaced yours.
The Google Classroom Support webpage is available here.
Classroom is available on the web or by mobile app.
