Microsoft Teams Connecting to Teams using Games Consoles

Dear Parents/Guardians & Students,

From Jan 11th, all teaching/learning will continue via the educational platform Microsoft Office 365 (Teams).

Students are advised to follow their daily timetable commencing Monday at 8.52am.

It is expected that all students engage with the learning process and complete all assigned work. Attendance registers will be taken.

Please let your teacher/tutor/year head or the office know if you are having any difficulties.

 

Microsoft Teams

All students have a log in username and password and have been shown how to use Microsoft Teams. This application can be accessed using a smart phone/tablet/laptop etc. In addition to this games consoles Xbox and Playstation can be used to access Teams. Keyboards can be used to make this easier (see instructions below) and are available from the school if anybody needs one. Please contact the office.
