This portal was developed rapidly, in response to the COVID-19 crisis in Term 1 and 2 of 2020.
Whilst it is currently not in use, it remains on our website to view, as evidence of the high quality education we strive to provide to all students in all circumstances, utilising technology to enhance education. For example, this time helped shape our current Learning Management System in High School
Welcome to the Trinity College Remote Learning Portal!
This portal is designed to help Trinity College students and parents find necessary information related to remote learning at Trinity College. Individual Teachers will be communicating directly with students/parents as necessary, but many resources can be found within this portal.
As per the announcement made on Tuesday 14th April from the Queensland premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, Queensland school students will learn at home for the first five weeks of Term 2, with schools only open for the children of essential workers, with review after those 5 weeks. The move to the home-based learning model starts on Monday, 20 April and will be in place until at least Friday, 22 May.
All students who can learn from home are to stay at home. School staff, unless they are vulnerable due to medical conditions, will continue to teach from the classroom to ensure continuity of learning for students.
Please be assured that students at school will be supervised while they complete the same learning program as students at home. We will ensure parents and students are well supported during this time. The number one priority is our community’s health and wellbeing.
We want to partner with you as parents at this time, whilst we will still continue to provide your students with the most enriching learning program that we can. We want to support you at home as well. We will be in regular contact with you, and available to provide
advice and support as much as you need.
Learning from Home Tips:
Establish Routines Children will function best if you are able to maintain as close a normal routine as possible. Some ideas are:
- Follow the timetable and set alarms to act as the school bell.
- Break times, and eating should also be followed – encourage them to get some fresh air during these times
- If you have more than one student at home scheduling resources such as the computer may be necessary.
- Maintain the same sleeping schedule as a normal school week.
- Make expectations clear and visible
- Wearing the school uniform might be helpful for some students to engage their mindset for learning, however it is not an expectation
Important Reminder: Make sure that the student’s school day ends at a reasonable time to allow for healthy down-time to support both their mental and physical wellbeing.
