School Stream is still the number one rated communication app in Australia and New Zealand! We’re sending one million notifications to parents each week – that’s a lot of happy parents! Here are some of the things parents have had to say about their experiences of using School Stream:
‘This is the best way to inform parents of what is going on at school. Very informative and very helpful. I rely on this app at all times’.
‘Brilliant and effective way of keeping up to date with information. Before there was the chance of losing paperwork’.
‘It is great for receiving info and being able to add absentees and lunch orders’.
‘Heaps better than relying on kids to bring newsletters home’.
Even if you’re not particularly tech-savvy, School Stream is a very intuitive app and parents find they get the hang of it very quickly:
‘This was one of the first apps I downloaded with my new iPhone and am surprised how easy it is to use’.
Why is School Stream so effective?
The smartphone revolution has truly changed the way we interact with each other, as well as with services. School Stream allows schools to communicate with parents in a way that aligns with their habits and expectations. In other words, we make it easy for parents so you get a better response.
As a fully integrated school communication app, School Stream can deliver notifications directly to smartphones.
Managing school life easily on parents’ smartphones means schools can expect a higher response rate – which is particularly helpful for reporting explained absences.
Parents no longer have to scour busy inboxes to find important messages from school because they can all be found in one place. Forms, payments, notifications, absent notes, parent-teacher evening bookings, translations to reach NESB communities, and so much more, can all be delivered directly to your parent community on their phones, no matter where they are.
From a school perspective
Instead of text messages – which can be expensive and soon add up – parents can receive an alert from school directly to their phone. There is no limit to the number of characters and notifications sent directly to parents’ phones reduces the need for printing newsletters and forms.
‘School Stream allows us to communicate directly with parents in seconds and this immediate communication is essential in today’s world’.
Paul Taylor, Principal, Turramurra North Public School
‘The School Stream app provides a much-needed communication tool; which enabled our families to access information 24/7 at the press of a button. All data; events, calendar dates, alerts, whole school information, programs, workshops etc, all accessed from one point with only one manager required to input data’.
Alison Bibby, Administration Manager, Burnside Primary School
