When commencing their remote learning for the day, students should access Canvas and click on their subject via their Canvas Dashboard. Once they have accessed their subject, students will see a table of instructions. The most recent instructions will be posted in the first row. The instructions will be dated or indicate the period/s to which the work relates. Where possible, the anticipated duration of the work will be communicated to students too. Work may be assigned for multiple periods and may requires multiple lessons to complete. In these cases, period by period instructions will not be posted.
