Here at Franciscan we want to support learning beyond the school day. Below you will find links and short descriptions to the on-line services that the school pays for to help support your child's learning across a variety of areas. 

All the sites require a user name and password which should have been passed to you, if you don't have those details, please ask your class teacher. When you select the link, a new window will take you to the website for that service.

Many of the sites also require additional software such as Adobe Flash to be installed. You can download Flash from the Adobe website by clicking on the image below.
