Welcome to Tech Help!

On this page you will find resources to help you with accessing the technology required for home learning.

We would hate for them to miss out, so we have put together some information below with details on how to access the learning provided by the school. If after browsing through the information below there is still something you are unsure of, please let your class teacher know in the first instance.
