[Umina, Woy Woy] Both campuses of Brisbane Water Secondary College have transitioned to online learning.

Umina campus principal Ms Kerrie O’Heir said Umina students now had access to a range of online learning resources and support via Google Classrooms.

Hard copy resources are also available to students but Ms O’Heir said that due to demand these were only available to students who did not have internet access at home.

Ms O’Heir said the campus would continue to update the community about what was going at the school and with the most up to date advice from the NSW Department of Education and other relevant authorities via email and its social media.

Ms O’Heir said there had been issues and delays with accessing online resources but she said these were temporary and were mainly caused by the volume of resources being uploaded and user error.
Woy Woy campus principal Ms Rebecca Cooper said the campus’ Facebook page would be the primary source of information to the community along with direct emails.

She had taken to making daily principal’s updates about how the situation has impacted students.

Students were also using Google Classrooms to access their resources.
Other options such as video chats with teachers were also available.
Both campuses have also made information about their resources available through their websites under the Learning from Home tab under the Learning at our School tab.
