Connect – Online Communication

Connect is a secure, web based communication system developed and maintained by the Department of Education. It provides teachers, students and parents with secure access to a collaborative online learning environment via the internet.

Coolbinia Primary School uses Connect to distribute information to parents of current students and not the general public. This includes:

  • a messaging function for the Principal, Deputies and teaching staff to send messages and notes to individual parents, parents of classes, year groups or the whole school.
  • the messaging function is also for teaching staff and students to communicate to their class groups. This could be about homework, class activities, reminders, requests for class parent help, photos of excursions and more online discussions amongst the school community.

Connect is the vehicle for parents to receive the weekly bulletin and the free ‘Connect Now’ app for smartphone/tablet is an immediate and simple way for parents to receive and view all notices as well as the bulletin.

To access Connect you will need internet access, no additional software is required. All parents will have received a login and password. If you have any difficulties please see the front office.
