Online Learning Logs

To support our reporting of learning & teaching each student has an individual Online Learning Log (OLLs). The OLLs provide families and students with regular work samples and teacher feedback.

  • To access your child’s SMCM Online Learning Log you will need to use the Gmail account you have provided the school.
  • Your child’s personal OLL address is their name, followed by smcm and their graduating year then .blogspot.com eg. jsmithsmcm2022.blogspot.com

If you are experiencing difficulties in accessing your child’s OLL, please see their teacher.

Winter is Coming!

With the blast of cold and wet weather in recent days, Mother Nature is reminding us that Winter is fast approaching! The air is more chilly and the grounds are becoming more wet and muddy.

At SMCM, students need to prepare themselves accordingly. Here are some reminders so that we can make the most of our inside and outside time at school.

  • Wear your full winter uniform from Monday 1st May
  • Bring in gumboots to wear for outside play.
    • Remember to label the inside of both gumboots with your name and class images
  • Bring in a box of tissues to share

Chromebooks

At times, students will be required to listen to audio for their learning. Headphones ensure that you are able to hear the audio while respecting the learning of others in the learning space.

  • Bring in headphones to be used with Chromebooks
    • Remember to label the headphones with your name and class 129109-L-LO

 

Looking forward to hearing about your weekend on Monday!

 

Chromebook Launch

The Middle School was a buzz of excitement this afternoon as the Chromebooks were launched in MacKillop Views. After practising transitions and logging in safely and responsibly, we began to learn how to create an avatar to keep our identity confidential.

What is the purpose of using Chromebooks?

Why is it essential that we follow the digital technology policy?

 

We can design and build a better future

Our Middle school students started their problem-based Inquiry unit this morning, addressing the question,  ‘When an idea meets a need, how can we make it happen?’

We became architects, interior designers, builders and landscapers as we designed and created various learning spaces.

What area of design did you most enjoy? What would you like to become an expert in?
