Digital Reporting

Digital Reports will go live on Tuesday 12 December. 

There have been on-going instructions via this website, school newsletters, specific newsletters and emails as to how to create a Linc-ed login to access digital reporting. 

If you have not completed this process, go to hameast.linc-ed.com/wp-login.  php Enter your email address and any text for the password. You will be told your password is incorrect and to reset your password. Do this and follow the instructions to log in. If you are told your email address is not registered it means either you have entered it incorrectly or you do not have a parent account set up in Linc-ed. Contact the school. If you do not have an email address at all, also contact the school.  

If your child is in a Year 1 or 2, they are reported on after every 20 weeks (6 months) at school so they may not have a current report to view at this stage.

Move to Seesaw 

 Kowhai and Totara Teams have been using an app called Easy Blogger to allow students to post their work to an individual blog to share with their families. 
We have been notified that Easy Blog is shutting down completely at the end of June so we have made the move to an alternative called Seesaw.
Teachers are in the process of setting this up. You will receive a notice home with a QR code to access your child's blog and subscribe. You will require a QR code reader on your phone. Each time your child posts to their blog,  you will be notified. 

  Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish
