Communication with parents and home tutors.
Parents and home tutors can communicate with the student’s teacher by phone, email or video conference. If the parent or home tutor need the direct telephone line of the teacher this one can be provided by calling the school.
Parents or home tutors need to reply to telephone calls, or check and reply to their emails, as soon as possible to support planned classes and learning programmes to achieve the purpose of the learning session.
If by any circumstance the student can not attend class, the school needs to be informed.
Communication with students
Teachers communicate daily with their students through ZOOM, a computer-based conferencing system. This system provides high-quality voice clarity, as well as a range of tools that enhance lesson presentation eg. chat and whiteboard. Please be aware internet connection could be affected by weather conditions such as rain, cloud cover and strong wind.
Besides, the school provides students with internet and email access.
Teachers visit their students during the year, these visits could be more than one and depends on how the students are developing their potential. To do this, they travel through isolated areas using 4WD vehicles equipped with satellite phones so that contact can be kept with the school. Charter flights are also used to visit students when deemed appropriate.
