Principal Update 22.4.20


Dear Parents, Guardians, Carers and Students

I know this is not an easy time for many of you, particularly if you have children at home and also trying to work, relatives that are sick, learning new technology, helping your children with the school work, trying to learn without your teacher present  and on top of all that isolation. The changes to our lives have been significant and fast.


To cope with the change, I have re-structured the Leadership Team into portfolios that relate to our areas of need this term and reflect our goals. Each team has an area of responsibility that directly relates to your child’s learning, connectedness and wellbeing. The Leaders have worked independently and also collaboratively to develop the structures to support your child/ren in the coming term and they have worked with you the staff to build capability and a shared understanding.


However, nothing is set in concrete, more than ever the Leaders are responsive to your thoughts, concerns, suggestions and feedback. The Leadership team meets regularly to plan for the future. We need your feedback to support us in that work. A huge thank you to everyone who has contacted us to give us your stories of Remote Teaching and Learning, the joys and the trials. We are here to support you.



We have divided the Teaching and Learning program into 3 distinct areas: Prep -4, 5-6 and 7-12 and this is causing some confusion for parents if they have multiple children across the different year levels.  Due to the stages of learning, we are using different digital platforms across the year levels to deliver Remote Teaching and Learning. The reason behind the use of different platforms  is each area was engaged in different digital platforms while on-site before Remote Teaching and Learning and therefore the students have had some instruction and experience with them.


The main issues for parents around the use of different platforms that I am aware of are technical. Below is a guide for parents and students from Tony Brooks:

  • the students use the same username and password to access Google Apps, Office 365, Adobe. This is their eduPass or email address.
    If you are looking for the  eduPASS, Google Apps, School eMail or Office details you should be able to find this on Compass under the reports tab labelled "2020 - Student Email Details"
    To access the reports tab as a student please click on your name in the top right hand corner of the screen, you will then see several tabs appear, including Reports.

  • if the student is having trouble with please try
    Some students have been previously setup by other schools to access their eMails via Gmail rather than Outlook. This will not affect their teacher’s ability to email them in any way.

  • When logging an issue please include any error messages, exactly what is not working and what it should be doing, any trouble shooting attempted, the more info included the better.  Screen shots are also very helpful.

  • DO NOT include any personal info like passwords when logging issues, instead use terms like Compass Password, eduPass password, Google password ect…

If you need ICT support 

If you have any ICT issues or need you Compass password reset please log all issues on the Bright P-12 Help Desk -
