Over the past week, Iona PS classroom blogs have come online, offering parents, community members, and the wider world an insight into the amazing teaching and learning activities at our school.

It has been wonderful to read our classes’ first posts, and to see our first comments from parents, teachers, and students from the Iona community, and from around the world.

Finding Your Child’s Class Blog

To access your child’s classroom blog, please use the links on the “Class Blogs” menu above.

Kindergarten and PrePrimary blogs are private, and parents should have received the password via their child’s classroom teacher. Years 1-6 blogs are shared publicly, enabling our students to reach an authentic global audience.

Keeping in Touch

In order to keep in touch with posts on the Admin blog (this one), and your child’s class blog, we would strongly encourage parents to subscribe by email, using the subscription widget on the blog sidebar. It takes about 2 minutes to set up, and you will receive an automatic email notification when a new post is published.

Comments

Comments from parents, family, and around the world help bring our classroom blogs to life, and help teach our students that they are publishing for an authentic real-world audience.

When commenting on blog posts, we would appreciate it if parents and relatives leave comments under their first name, especially if they refer to a child mentioned in the post. For example, you might comment as Jenny (Laura’s Mum), rather than Jenny Smith (Laura’s Mum). This will help us protect the privacy of students mentioned / featured on classroom blog posts.
