We are now a Google for Education school.  At this time, staff are only required to use gmail.  This webpage contains information about this change.  For information on a specific part of Google - click on links on the left.

It is recommended to start using Goggle Chrome as your browser - most Google apps work in Internet explorer and Mozilla Firefox but you may run into some issues.

Logging into your google account: when on the internet:
  • From our website, go to Staff Resources and click on Access to Email link - a login window will open - your username and password are the same as what you log into your computer with.
  • From the internet, go to google and at top right corner, there is a log in link, click on this - with this window you will need to put in your email address as username and password is what you use to log into your computer with.  Be sure to click the box that says stay logged in.
When in your google account, the links at the top will open the different programs - click on gmail to see your emails.  You will not be able to use your Outlook email.

Even though staff are only required to use Gmail, staff should log into their Google Calendar and set it up (click on calendar link).  When you open your Google Calendar for the first time, there will be prompts that you need to follow, the first one being what time zone do you want calendar set in.  The reason for setting up your calendar is that there are many google calendars being used by staff that you will not be able to see unless you have set it up.
