Resources Available to You with Your SIS Google Account:

 
Gmail :: The student email system.  Powerful, flexible and available everywhere.

Each student, teacher and support staff is given a SIS Google account that has a Gmail account included.  You access this by logging in to the school VLE, The Learning Gateway.

SIS Gmail email addresses are: [USERNAME]@webmail.sis.edu.hk 

  • For students this is your school email.  Your teachers will send messages to this account, they will not use personal email addresses.
  • Teachers, if you ever need to send an email attachment that is too large for your Gateway email, then your SIS Gmail account can help you.  Note: any email sent to this account is forwarded to your Gateway email account.
 
 Google Calendar

Each Google account has a Google Calendar.  It WILL help you organize yourself immensely If you use it.  Synchronizing it with your portable media player or smart phone makes this calendar particularly powerful. 

Enter in upcoming exams and due dates and get reminders.  Share your calendar with friends and family to further extend the power of this tool. 

 
Google Groups.  Create your own customizable and shareable email groups from the school address book.

NEW!  Members of the SIS Google domain can create custom email groups from the school email address book to suit your needs!  

Need to create an email group of people going on your Activity Group Trip that everyone can use?  If you create the group in YOUR address book, only you can use it.  If you create it in Google Groups everyone can use it.  It is pretty nifty and useful!

Access this by clicking on the Google More Buttonbutton located at the top of your Google Page.
