Welcome to 2018!

Dear Parents and Students.

I hope you’ve all had a good break and are well rested and all set for an exciting year ahead. A couple of bits of news from the QMC e-Desk:

  • Next week all Year 6 parents and new parents will be sent an email regarding Laptop start up information for 2018.
  • IT staff will be running a Helpdesk drop in service on Thursday 25 January and Friday 26 January, 9am – 3.30pm, to trouble shoot problems should people need help.

In addition, in-class time will be allocated in the first weeks to school for supporting students with loading Class OneNote notebook, setting up students’ subject folders on their OneDrive, and running through the basics of computer usage, care and management. Internet safety and ethics will be covered at the outset for Year 6-10 students, and other aspects of Digital Citizenship will be addressed over the course of the year.

I look forward to seeing the girls again and in particular extend a warm welcome to our new parents and students for 2018. Please email me on richard.knuckey@qmc.school.nz of have any questions about our 1:1 laptop programme or the role that IT will play in your daughter’s classes this year.
