Information for Parents – Learning at Home
Please visit the eSafety website. The website is https://www.esafety.gov.au/parents. This site contains essential information about the best way to support students using technology at home. Setting up clear guidelines, expectations and routines will help your child manage screen time and get the most from the amazing technology we have available. It’s important to remember that parents are in control of digital devices at home.
We understand when learning remotely you may face technical challenges and questions.
Nilma Primary school will endeavour to assist families and students. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback of a technical nature relating to the iPad or the our Learning at Home pages of the website please don’t hesitate to reach out – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or ring our school mobile.
