Melissa Bridson, CEO/Founder
School Stream started in the way so many good ideas start.
That feeling: “There must be a better way”.
As parents and educators, we all want the same thing for our children; to feel happy, love life, be safe and reach their full potential.
As innovators, we help that happen. School Stream works hard to enable schools to become leaders in school communication.
Why? Because we believe in communication. We believe in starting conversations about the things that really matter. We believe in supporting and empowering school staff. We believe in inclusive school communities. We believe in smart, intuitive technology. We believe in a sustainable, paperless future. We believe in you.
We love a good chat. Get in touch.

Product Support Manager
Brad is often referred to as School Stream’s office angel. He is our chief product trainer and life support. If you need any help, he’ll be there. If he’s not, he’ll be either DJ’ing or in the pool overtaking the kids.

School Stream has streamlined the way we communicate with our school community. Parents feel much more connected and informed. We have also reduced our paper usage considerably.
