Home Learning:

Students are able to access their online PowerPoint coursework portfolio from home (with internet access) through KPHS Kingsnet and through PADLET.

We ask that students access their work from home so they can continue to annotate and present their work. Students can edit their Photography at school (using Photoshop) and then at home they are able to present this work formally.


Students have access to the PADLET resources from home which gives them step-by-step tutorial videos on how to edit and on how to present their work.
