PLACES - PLC Sydney Portal
Image (from left): PLACES home screen, Notices, Calendar and Weekly Digest.
By now many of your have logged in and seen PLACES, our new PLC Sydney Portal. It is the interface where parents, staff and students can access the various online services PLC Sydney has to offer e.g. Notices, Calendar, My Timetable, Edumate, Enable, Google Mail, Service Desk.
The other new communication tool you will also have received by now is the Weekly Digest. This comes out on Fridays and summarises your Notices (ie Notices you have yet to view within PLACES) and the Calendar for the coming week.
Notices have replaced some of the many emails that are sent from multiple sources and are used to alert you to announcements, send reminders, ask you to register for events etc and often link back to an activity on the Calendar. Information that was previously sent home in an email, or as an attachment, including permission notes, now goes into PLACES as either additional information on a Calendar activity, and optionally via a Notice, as a call to action. Notices enable us to customise communications so that you will receive the information relevant to you (and in the case of parents, your daughter/s).
Over time, as we develop PLACES and build rich content, we will be able to remove more private ‘student specific’ information from the website to within the secure PLACES.
