  • Above is a suggested structure of what a remote learning day could look like for students
  • Providing flexible options for remote learning is important and teachers are aware that each student’s requirements and remote learning demands are different.
  • We understand that specific demands can impact a student’s ability to complete a structured timetable, however, routine and communication with teachers and peers will be important during remote learning
  • Teachers will be available via several communication methods. Please refer to the Remote Learning Handbook for an outline.
  • When teachers run specific Teams video sessions or chat sessions they will do so during allocated class time as per the student’s scheduled class. For example, if English is scheduled to run Period 1 Monday that is when the English video/chat sessions would be run (as per the structured timetable above)
  • Afternoon flexible learning options are a chance for students to consolidate the day’s work, complete any scheduled extra Teams sessions, undertake practical sessions as directed by the teacher or specific assessment/research tasks undertaken/completed.
  • After school Homework/study sessions. As outlined above it is an expectation that students will complete some extra reading/homework/study after 3.15 pm.
  • Please refer to the suggestions in the Homework/study section
  • It is recommended that all students (Years 7-12) complete at least 20 minutes of non-technology reading per day. For example, students book listed English novel
  • VCE students it is an expectation that they complete at least 1-2 (unit 1 & 2) or 2-3 (unit 3 & 4) 45 minute study sessions per night. There would be an expectation that this is also completed on at least 1 day on the weekend.

Parents are asked to;

  • Monitor their child’s access to Remote Learning activities, Microsoft Teams, and email and if there are any issues or concerns contact IT support at helpdesk@lavalla.vic.edu.au
  • Alternatively, contact the child’s subject teacher or LA/Homeroom teacher via email.
  • Access PAM for specific work requirements and feedback on completed tasks. PAM is anticipated to be active in week 2 or 3 of remote learning. More information will be sent out about this.
  • Help with the management of their child’s access to remote learning resources.
  • Have access to student timetables through PAM and to monitor that their child is participating in scheduled classes at the appropriate times. Please refer to the suggested outline above.
  • Notify the College via PAM or email to confirm that their child will be absent from online lessons. This will enable the College to monitor student attendance and wellbeing.
  • Ensure morning and afternoon Homeroom and LA tasks are completed by students as a form of attendance/participation in remote learning.
