Online @ Hillbrook :: Site news
The new theme for Online@Hillbrook has been set as the default for all users. The development aim has been to improve usability on different screen sizes (including tablets and phones) and a slight layout refresh.
Thanks to the people who tested it over the last few weeks and thanks also for the feedback. Hopefully all issues have been addressed.
Please contact us via the helpdesk if you discover any issues.
If you decide you urgently need the old theme back them please use the links below to control your current theme.
The old theme will cease to be an option by the beginning of the 2015 school year.
There's a new, small, battery recycling bin in the Admin foyer which can be used for disposing of pretty much any used battery. Any brand of AA, AAA, C, D, 9V batteries, button cells (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are accepted - simply drop your used batteries into the bin.
When the bin is full its contents will be transferred to a designated battery recycling point for processing. Batteries can be processed to recover plastics and metals, some of which are used to manufacture new batteries. Recycling also removes them from landfill where they would otherwise slowly leak toxic chemicals.
The attached Planet Ark battery recycling factsheet provides more information if you need.
If you have a backup of your data from your MacBook and you're unable to read it on a Windows computer you need to know about a free piece of software called HFS-Explorer. It provides Windows with a way to read the HFS filesystem on your Mac formatted drive.
