At Harristown it is acknowledged that today’s learners require access to contemporary digital technologies. It is believed that such access will promote learner engagement, provide access to a wide range of information resources, enhance classroom practice, and enable our students to participate as effective members of an increasingly digital society. Harristown has six computer laboratories, more than a 1000 laptops and all classrooms are fitted with data projectors. Such technology allows teachers to prepare students for the future.
Online Services Consent
Harristown State High School uses tools and resources to support student learning, including third party (non-departmental) online services hosted and managed outside of the Department of Education network.
Online services, including websites, web applications, and mobile applications, are delivered over the internet or require internet connectivity. Examples may include interactive learning sites and games, online collaboration and communication tools, web-based publishing and design tools, learning management systems, and file storage and collaboration services.
The Online Services Consent Form is to inform you about the third-party online services used in our school and how your child's information, including personal information and works, may be recorded, used, disclosed, and published to the services (if you provide your consent for this to occur).
The Online Services Consent Form (PDF, 670KB) is a record of the consent provided and you are asked to complete this as part of enrolment and as your student moves from the junior to the senior phase of learning.
Student Central is the Intranet for Schools (SharePoint) site and the student home page for our school. From here, students can access notices, resources and links including Office 365 and email. Students are able to access Student Central from home by using the link on the website. They will need to login using their school username and password.
