Welcome to our new Online Learning Platform!

 

We look forward to connecting with you in new and innovative ways. Our mission remains the same here at CCS, as we embrace off-campus schooling. 

Please be aware that not all aspects of this platform are active yet. We will be rolling out our Online Learning over the coming days. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this. 

Parents and Guardians

With online learning being rolled out across the school it is important for you to be well-equipped as you seek to support your child’s online learning experience. Below you will find some useful information about students working from home.

 

Working from home:

Students are expected to set aside regular, focussed study time and submit work as usual. Submission of tasks is equivalent to attendance

  • Please ensure that the children in your care are using their device in a “public” area of your home. Bedrooms and bathrooms are inappropriate 

  • Please ensure that your child is dressed in appropriate day wear when using their device. 

  • Please check that you have internet filtering, parent controls and privacy settings in place on the device that your child is using. 

 

Zoom Lessons

Zoom is a video communication software that Casino Christian School will be using to communicate online content to students in an engaging and interactive way. It enables teachers and students to communicate in real time just like in the classroom. As our online learning platform continues to progress, your child may be required to attend online lessons at various times. To help keep students safe online, we need parents to be aware of the following:

  • Teachers cannot control when and where the students can use this software so parents and caregivers need to be aware of what their children are doing, just like you should at any time your child accesses the internet.  

  • Students should only be participants in a Zoom lesson created by their teacher and should not be hosting their own sessions or inviting other people into the school sessions.

  • Our preferred method of connection is for students to join an online session using https://zoom.us/join. We prefer this method over students creating an account as we want to minimise them having an online Zoom account, where they can host their own sessions. If students want to use the app, they can still join a meeting without having to sign in or create an account. If students have already signed up for an account then they can easily sign out under account settings.


If you have any concerns or questions about the use of this software please contact the school at admin@ccs.nsw.edu.au

Challenges in Online Learning

Online learning can be challenging for students for a variety of reasons. These are some things to take into consideration: 

  • Student’s ability to learn and work independently 

  • Self-motivation will vary according to your child’s age and maturity 

  • The home environment may be more distracting for some students, especially with siblings in view 

  • Contact with peers during remote learning can distract from productive work habits. Be aware that not all conversation is collaboration 

  • Please check in with your child to see how they are going with their online learning 

 

Online safety

It is important that you have a plan in place at home to create a safe and caring environment that supports student wellbeing. Included below is a link to an information pack that has more detailed information about online safety. The pack contains helpful information regarding:

  • False information and online scams

  • How to help kids stay safe online

    • Start the chat

    • Use parental controls and safe search options

    • Check device settings

    • Look out for unwanted contact and grooming

  • How to look after yourself

PRIMARY SCHOOL

SECONDARY SCHOOL

We are rolling out interactive live streaming to more classes. You will be notified when this applies to your child's class. You can either download the ZOOM app or join a meeting online. You can access the join meeting link using the button below. 

As a school we do not recommend that students sign up for an account. They can simply join a meeting online by using a login code and pin. This will provided to them by their teacher in an email before each scheduled meeting.
