Your School Email Address
All students have an Education Department email which is usually firstname.lastname@example.org.
This email is automatically linked to your Connect. When teachers put notices on Connect, an email is sent to this address to alert you to read the notice in Connect. Use this email address for all school-based activities and programs you login to.
Outlook and Webmail
The students can access their emails via Connect when they login there is an envelope icon in the top right corner next to their user account icon. Clicking on that icon will take them to their emails.
Alternatively, they can also access their emails via Office.com. Sign in using the students’ education email address.
Their education email address is their Connect username followed by @student.education.wa.edu.au, usually email@example.com. You will be prompted to enter your username and password; this is the same username and password used for Connect.
You can access Connect via the link in the Student Portal or directly at: http://connect.det.wa.edu.au Teachers at Applecross SHS use Connect to share resources, to notify students of information about their classes, to lead discussions on class topics and as a place for students to collaborate and submit work. The username and password to access Connect are the same as your network username and password.
ClickView Online allows you access to the school video library over the Internet. This enables you to view video programs shown in class 24/7. This is very useful for revision purposes or if you are absent from class when videos are shown.
