Learning from home

We're keeping students learning both in and out of the classroom.

Explore the department's Learning remotely resources to support both online and offline learning for all students.

Learning remotely without technology

We understand some students do not have access to a device or internet for online learning. Contact the school to discuss non-digital learning from home options for your child.

Asquith Public School acknowledges the challenging learning circumstances and thank you for your support and flexibility. 

Please refer to the home learning packs for daily tasks, timetables and scaffold materials.

Should you need additional tasks, here are some options and ideas. 

Remember to wash your hands and stay safe.

  • taking an active role in helping your children process their learning
  • encouraging physical activity and/or exercise
  • checking in with your child regularly to help them manage stress
  • monitoring how much time your child is spending online
  • keeping your children social, but set rules around their social media interactions.

These responsibilities should be adjusted according to the age of your child:

  • establishing and/or following a daily routine for learning
  • identifying a safe, comfortable, quiet space in their home where they can work effectively and successfully
  • regularly monitoring digital platforms and communication (O365, G-Suite for Education, Seesaw, Canvas, email, etc.) to check for announcements and feedback from teachers
