Connect is a learning, support and communications platform developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. View the short video clip on Connect at https://vimeo.com/connectwa/welcome. Connect is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe.
How do parents access Connect? Each parent is given their own secure login. If you have more than one child you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools. Parents can log into Connect on any internet-connected device with notices being sent as either an email or a notification to your phone.
The free Connect Now app allows parents to receive Connect notices as push notifications. It can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
This is the school's main form of communication with families, so parents are advised to check Connect regularly to keep up to date with their child’s school journey.
Examples of information you can access in Connect:
- Whole school notifications, including newsletters
- Class events and notifications
- Classroom learning activities
- Notifications from individual teachers
- Attendance records
- Student Reports
If you have trouble setting up or using Connect, please contact the school office.
