Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Understanding and navigating the digital ecosystem

In the middle division, students and teachers use a wide variety of digital tools for different purposes. Over the first few weeks, our Year 6 and 7 students will learn to navigate these systems and understand how they can most effectively be used.

Although parents don’t have direct access to these tools (the students log in with their UCC Google accounts), we encourage you to sit down with your son and have him show you the different systems he will be using to keep himself organized. 

We know it will take time for him to become comfortable with these tools and he will receive support from his Form Adviser, our Centre for Learning and his subject teachers. You also provide essential support by encouraging him to look for information in the correct place. Below, you will find a summary of the main systems we use and their purpose to help you guide your son when he is unsure of where to look for information related to his schoolwork.
