elearning at SDEHS

Elearning has always played a major part of teaching and learning at Sydney Distance Education High School. We have hosted online lessons on our school webpage since 2002. In 2006, SDEHS introduced the use of Moodle to handle the management of our learning materials and online student/teacher communication. We now have over 100 full and part time courses online and are continually developing and updating a variety of courses to enhance our curriculum. We are constantly revaluating this process to make it the best system possible to meet the needs of our students. To access our courses go to elearning.

Important Changes to School Contributions and Payments

Sydney Distance Education High School will transition to the new NSW public schools’ finance system and a new bank account on 25 July 2017.

To ensure a smooth transition, there will be changes to the way we accept payments.

1. Direct deposits: As of 30 June 2017, we will no longer accept direct deposits into our current school bank account as we prepare to close this account and transition to the new one. Any payments made using direct deposit after this date cannot be properly allocated to a student’s account in a timely manner. Please ensure you have made any outstanding direct deposits before 30 June 2017.

2. Cash and cheque payments: Between 19 July 2017 and 24 July 2017, we will also not be able to receipt payments by cash or cheque as we prepare to close our current bank account and transition to the new one. Please ensure that you have made any outstanding cash or cheque payments before 19 July 2017. From 25 July 2017, cash and cheque payments will be receipted as before.

3. Online payments: From 30 June 2017 to 26 July 2017, our school’s online payment facility will be suspended while we complete this transition. Online payments will available from 25 July 2017.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition to our new finance system. We are hopeful the addition of an online payment facility will prove of benefit to families.

If you have any questions, please contact the school’s finance section on 9383 0200.

The online payment system has been temporarily disabled while we transition to the new finance system. Please check back after the 26th of July. Thank you.
