As many Year 7/8 students will have noticed, Google Apps for Education is about to be launched in the Secondary School starting with Year 7/8 this term and expanding to include Years 5/6 and 9/10.

We are looking to create a series of “Expert Guides” on using Google Drive, Mail, Blogger and the Calendar features in classrooms. These students will be receiving support from Mr Riley during PLC time to help other teachers and students become similar experts in using Google Apps.

You don’t need to be an expert in Google Apps already, you just need to be willing to learn and then willing to teach and help people out who aren’t quite sure of what they’re doing. The Harrison values of Care, Teamwork and Respect are big aspects of this role, and also the unofficial value of ‘Patience’ 🙂

If you’d like to be one of these people, please contact me (Mr Riley) via his email ( or finding me in the corridor and making me write down your name so I don’t forget.
