Book Week

Book Week will be held on Thursday 22 October and students are encouraged to come to school dressed as their favourite curious book creature for a gold coin donation.

Student Expectations

As students, you have an important role to play in your own School@Home learning. Continuing to be responsible learners as you engage with online learning will require good decisions, a positive attitude, cooperation with parents and teachers, and a generous attitude towards others. 

We encourage you to read this page with your parents and to WHOK on.

Healthy routines are important for successful learning. Your teachers and parents will help you to set up some good learning habits and practices while you are learning from home. 

Your Google Classroom has a topic called General. In that section, you will find a suggested timetable to follow, as well as other important information from your teacher. In addition, you may like to download and print this K-6 Daily Checklist to help you stay on track.

As a Primary (K-6) student, you are expected to:

  • Watch the Kuyper Community Devotion at 9.00am. We hope that this will be a positive, encouraging and motivating start to your day! Knowing that the whole Kuyper community is watching and praying together will help us to start each day feeling connected.
  • Log into your Google Classroom at 9.15am to access the Literacy and Numeracy work set for that day by your teacher.
  • Log into your Google Classroom at 12.00pm to access the other KLA work set for that day by your teacher. 
  • Do your best to complete each task.
  • Send or return all tasks asked for by your teacher on, or before, Friday each week.
  • Spend some time each day doing physical exercise.
  • Serve your family by doing a helpful chore each day.
  • Eat sensible, healthy meals and snacks.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Email your teacher (or message through Google Classroom) if you have any questions or problems with your work. Mum or Dad may also request a phone call from your teacher by calling the school office. Your teacher will be calling your home once each fortnight to check how you are going with your work, but questions can be asked at any time. Your teachers love hearing from you!
  • Be actively engaged in learning between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm. If you finish your work before 3.00pm, use the remaining time to:
      • Read a book
      • Do some gardening
      • Make something out of LEGO
      • Draw, paint or create something
      • Do some jobs to help your family
      • Write a friendly email to a friend or to your teacher
      • Get some exercise
      • Cook or bake something
      • Make a card for someone you care about

Enjoy this interesting learning adventure!

Healthy routines are important for successful learning at home. Every student will need to consider the following aspects of maintaining a healthy balance of study, physical activity and general well being while studying remotely.

Learning at home:

  • I have a plan for my day and this has been discussed with my parents or carers.
  • There are planned times for physical activity and leisure.
  • I have planned a healthy breakfast, other snacks and meal breaks during the day.
  • I have planned to watch the Kuyper Community Devotion at 9.00am. 
  • I know Who to Contact if I have questions about school work or there are things affecting my well being.
  • A daily planner is a great way to keep organised. You might like to download and print this 7-12 Daily Planner.

Using Google Classroom: 

  •  I have logged in and shown Google Classroom to a parent or carer.
  •  I can navigate between different Classes in Google Classroom.  
  •  I have a copy of my timetable.
  •  I plan to check for new work in my timetabled classes every day.
  •  I know how to message my teachers in Google Classroom and use Gmail to send emails to my teachers and peers.
  •  I can upload and Turn in an Assignment in Google Classroom.
  •  I can take a photo of work and submit it using ‘Turn in’.

Your teachers will post new work to your classes in Google Classroom. This is the first place you should check for any new work.

  • You may complete the work at any time during the day or week, but it is expected that you will finish the week’s work by the end of the week.
  • All instructions to complete work will be provided in Google Classroom. Contact your teacher straight away if you have any questions.
  • Your teachers will be available online during the timetabled class for which work has been set.
  • At the end of each week you will be asked to provide evidence of completed work. Your teachers will give clear instructions in Google Classroom on how this should be done for each subject.

Years 11 to 12
Your teachers will post new work to your classes in Google Classroom. This is the first place you should check for any new work.

  • There will be work posted at the same time you have regular timetabled lessons.

How will I know if I have an assessment task due?
We are still using the same assessment schedules which were in place prior to starting School@Home. Your assessment schedules for each subject can be found in Google Classroom. If there are any changes, an official notification will be sent by your teacher.

What if I am sick, or circumstances affect my capacity to complete an assessment task?
Follow the normal procedures for illness or misadventure. Please contact your teacher to explain the situation. An illness and misadventure form can be found in the 2020 Stage 6 Assessment Procedures handbook. 

What if I cannot access resources due to poor internet or have problems with technology?
Please email your teacher well in advance of the task due date and they will do everything they can to help. Your teacher will either provide access to resources and solutions to your problems, or direct you to someone who can help.

I have an assessment task due soon and I would like to get feedback from my teacher. What is the best way to do this?
There are many ways you can communicate with your teacher.

  • Email your work and ask for comments and feedback.
  • Share the Google Document with your teacher and ask for feedback.
  • Organise a phone call with your teacher by contacting the school.
  • Come into school and discuss the task with your teacher.

Daily Planners

A daily planner is a great way to keep organised. You might like to download and print these to help you keep on track.

Who to Contact

Who do I contact for help with classwork?
Contact your class teacher first, by email or messaging your teacher through Google Classroom. If you are in a Secondary Support Class you can also contact your Support Teacher’s Aide in the same way.

Who do I contact for help with technology?
Ask your parents first. If they cannot help you resolve the issue, contact your Classroom Teacher or Core Teacher by email. You can also put in an IT Help Request.

Who do I contact if I am sick and I am unable to do an assessment task or assignment?
Please follow the usual procedures. If you are in Year 11 or 12, an illness and misadventure form can be found in the 2020 Stage 6 Assessment Procedures. If you are in Years 7 to 10, please ask your parents to email your teacher to explain the situation.
