    • curriculum/lesson specific resources
  • Assessment tasks including:
    • Assigned tasks
    • Homework
    • Teacher feedback and marking
  • Collaborative tools including blogs

The VLE acts as a portal to other school systems such as Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), MIS, and Sharepoint for school users.

They can access the VLE by clicking on the link below:

Remote Desktop Connection
