Google Suite

During Remote Learning, our students will utilise a range of the Google Suite Apps to assist with learning at Harvest Home Primary School. GSuite will be our primary platform for the delivery (to those who have access) of teaching and learning in the event of remote learning duringPhase Two and Three.

Whilst our educators from Years 3-6 have planned and delivered content on the GSuite platform already in 2020, our Junior School students may not have been exposed to the GSuite programs to assist with and redefine their learning experiences. Below is a series of guides to support families and students with signing into GSuite apps and functions of the particular programs.

The applications below can be found by clicking on the nine dots in your
