Over the past two years, our School has undergone a significant transformation in the way we deliver resources, content, and information, thanks to the implementation of The Nest. We want to take a moment to share with you the numerous benefits this system has brought to our School community and to inform you about our plans for 2024 and beyond.

Some of the benefits of The Nest include:

  1. Enhanced Communication: The Nest has centralised communication between teachers, students, and parents. It has provided us with a platform for sharing announcements, assignments, and grades, making it easier for you to stay involved in your child’s education.
  2. Streamlined Access to Resources: With The Nest, students access digital learning materials, homework assignments, and additional resources from anywhere with an internet connection. This accessibility has made learning more flexible and convenient.
  3. Improved Organisation: The Nest has helped students stay organised by providing digital planners, calendars, and to-do lists. This has assisted them in managing their time and assignments more effectively.
  4. Real-Time Progress Tracking: Parents can now monitor their child’s academic progress in real time. You can view grades, feedback, and upcoming assignments, allowing for more proactive support and intervention if needed.
  5. Personalised Learning: The Nest enables teachers to tailor instruction to individual student needs. It offers opportunities for personalised feedback and additional resources for students, as well as enrichment activities for those who excel.

We are planning on conducting a thorough audit of The Nest over the coming months to continue to enhance your experience and provide quality-of-life updates. We also acknowledge that there are some elements of functionality that need work, such as the calendar and the Parent Hubs. If you would like to be involved in any feedback sessions, please contact me via travis.parker@knox.vic.edu.au and I’d love to hear your feedback.
