At Kelston Intermediate our students will be using Google Classroom to receive their online home learning programmes. Students use their school Google account to access Google Classroom. Many students will be very familiar with Google Classroom as they already use it on a daily basis at school.
Please read the latest information from our Principal and the Ministry of Education regarding home learning and the provision of devices, internet access and materials.
Google Classroom can be accessed on all devices that can connect to the internet, however work that has been posted for students is best completed on a tablet, iPad, laptop, Chromebook or desktop computer rather than a mobile phone. On an iPad or tablet the Google Classroom app can be downloaded from the app store. For all devices the Chrome web browser is preferred for using Google apps.
Students need to be logged into their School Google Account to be able to access their classes and work in Google Classroom.
Parents who have previously given the school their email address have been invited to receive Google Classroom email notifications. You can choose whether to get daily or weekly summary notifications about activities that have been posted for your child.
