Att. Jr 4 Parents

Dear parents,

As part of the ongoing initiative and effort in keeping our students on the crest of innovation in using digital content within their learning journey, the school invested in individual Office 365 memberships for all the students at St Catherine’s.  While older students are now very confident in using these tools as part of their daily work, it is now time for our younger group of DigiKidz to launch into this new world. For this reason, I kindly ask you to read through the instruction pack that I handed today to the Jr4B students (Jr 4A – to follow).

By activating your child’s account your son/daughter will have full access to all available tools, which we will be using in class over the years. We shall be starting off by using Outlook e.mail, where children will be able to share/reply to e.mails within our St Catherine’s community, enabling them to learn the basic features, also applying all the Do’s and Don’ts listed within their workbooks.

For this reason, kindly follow instructions as to activate and create a password for your child’s account. It is very important that passwords are written within their instruction pack and left within their black folders for class use.

Step 1: Access my lesson on LearnPads

Please let me know if you need further assistance

Scholastic Pro on Learn Pads

Dear Parents,

Jr 5s: Kindly note that all students were given a laminated sheet, carrying teacher’s QR Codes (as per link hereunder). This will enable students to shift from one lesson to another with ease, not having to stay logging on blogs to view specific QRs. Included one can also find a QR code for Scholastic Pro. Students are to access the link within the lesson and input user and password.

Lessons QR Codes

Jr 4s: Right after the holidays, students will be given a similar sheet to the one above for easier lesson access. In the meantime, I am sharing Scholastic Pro’s QR.
