Introducing GS Online Learning for Junior Section Grade VI
Guidelines for Parents
We hope students have been utilizing their time effectively and productively at home by downloading the home assignments uploaded on Parents’ Portal.
In order to ensure students’ learning goes on amidst the extended school closure, the School has made arrangements to set up an online learning portal for Grade VI students, based on the technology provided by Google Classrooms. Teachers will be uploading video lessons, related resources, assignments and quizzes onto the relevant groups in Google Classrooms. Students will be required to spend time on these lessons and quizzes every weekday: they will be expected to responsibly engage with the content, ask questions where needed, complete assignments and quizzes as per the instructions and deadlines given by their teachers.
Hardware & Connectivity: Parents are to please ensure that students have access to a computer, tablet or smartphone with a reliable internet connection.
GS Online ID: Students are being assigned GS Online IDs and passwords. These will be required for them to access the online learning portal on Google Classrooms. You will be receiving these credentials specific to your child via SMS shortly. Please head on over gmail.com to sign in to your child’s GS Online ID.

The Google Classroom app can also be downloaded free of cost on smartphones or tablets through Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Watch a YouTube tutorial on how to use the Google Classroom.
