During this last flooding and weather situation in our area, the Parent Teacher Calendar App- Push Notifications has been an invaluable tool for us as a school.
Being able to notify all subscribing parents at the touch of a button has been a huge relief.
Thanks so much for this!

Hi Team, Parents are liking the Parent Teacher Calendar App and prefer this to the School Website
Karen HaleExecutive OfficerPirongia School
I am so impressed with the service we received from the staff at The Parent and Teacher Calendar App, once I gave them the go ahead it was only a matter of days before the App was running fully with our details. The staff were helpful with my questions throughout the whole process and I can see that updating our information in the future will be very easy. I'm sure this will be a great tool for us to communicate with our community, thank you to the Parent and Teacher Calendar App team and, of course, the businesses that advertise with them which makes this service possible.

Just like to say how beneficial the Parent Teacher App is for not only the school but for the parents. It is useful on our end to know that if they have the app downloaded they are receiving their newsletters (which is a great new feature) and any information which is important can be sent with push notifications. It also saves us on printing costs having to send information and newsletters home (and at times they aren't given by the children) and this is peace of mind knowing that if the parents have this downloaded they will receive the information. And it's free, for a small school such as ours it is definitely a bonus!!

Last week our bus broke down as it was about to leave school here in the afternoon. It was great to be able to text all parents to let them know !
Dealing with your staff is always quick and efficient.
We wouldn't be without it now and would recommend the App to other schools.
Frances NimmoPrincipalWindwhistle School
Our experience to-date with the parent / teacher app has been totally positive; from our first enquiry, explanations, working with sponsors, responding to emails - all first class.
The app is very user-friendly and that is also helping to engage our whole community.
We are very pleased that we had this app suggested to us from another school and highly recommend it to others.
A great way to keep parents informed about school events. An easy and straightforward app to use.

The Parent Teacher App has been a fantastic addition to how we communicate with parents. Parents constantly have the school calendar at their finger tips and utilise the absence part of the app regularly. The app saves our office staff time as they have less parents to ring and chase up the whereabouts of their child.
The Parent Teacher App was a breeze to set up with extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. We as a school highly recommend the Parent Teacher App.

Our school has used the Parent-Teacher App since term 2 and we have been very pleased with the way it has worked in our school. We are a tiny school and I am a teaching principal and I have found it very easy and not at all time consuming to set up, Sharlene and her team worked hard to find our sponsors and even helped with promoting it within our school community. Parents have loved the reminders that they get in regards to events happening in the school and it is a very useful tool when we have to contact parents urgently such as when we had to cancel a recent sports event. We love it!
Greg LeesDeputy PrincipalFairfield School
The Parent Teacher App has provided an extra means of communication with our community that has required basically zero input or maintenance from the school end. The school calendar and newsletters are linked in to the app, and we couldn't believe the amount of hits we had from parents as it was quickly in the thousands.
Mary HowardOffice Administrator
As soon as we got the App up and running, most of our parents were eager to download and use it. especially great for absence notification, saves a lot of "phoning around" and especially good for last minute or emergency alerts.
All other school information is available for parents to so they can plan their days around school events and commitments.

The app was very easy to use. Our parents and staff all completely engaged. Our sponsors were really happy too.

Leonie SykesVerran Primary School, Birkenhead, Auckland
Everyone I have spoken to has been extremely helpful, professional and very fast and efficient. There are other companies providing apps in New Zealand, as you know, but I am so glad we have gone with you.
Chris LindersSt Josephs-Stratford school
We really like your product. We especially like the way you make the whole process easy for us.
Carol GrahamPrincipal, Otaua School
We love the Parent Teacher App and are really keen to rollover. Many of our parents use this facility and I have found the push notification system to be really useful in getting the message out promptly when necessary. We are also exceptionally appreciative of the sponsorship we have to enable us to continue with this service.
We have just started using this app and we are really liking it so far.
We love the ability for parents to contact us from the app for absentees etc which more parents are choosing to do as the weeks go by.
Loving it so far
Liandra AllenRotorua Lakes High school
We do love the app, slowly getting more people using it. I especially like the new look.
Gina SmithPrincipal, Featherston School
We are up and going well. More and more parents are starting to use it as we help them download the app.
Thanks you for such an easy to use and useful service.

We have had some good feedback from our parents, I like the way it links to our school google calendar.
Donna M SearanckeOffice Manager/Principal’s PA, Tongariro School
Since the Push Notification started, I have found it so helpful with notifying our school community.
I can get messages (in the form of a smart phone message within 30 minutes of notifying PT Calendar App) to whoever has downloaded the Parent Teacher Calendar App for Tongariro School – this involves our students, parents, caregivers and local community.
Absolutely find this very helpful and would recommend it for all schools to use!!
Robyn WoodDeputy Principal, St Clair School
We have found the Parent Calendar app to be extremely useful for our parent community. As most of our parents have smart phones, it is an easy way for them to check what events are happening in the school including the times and locations. The app is also an easy way for our parents to inform us of their child's absence. From a school's perspective, it is very simple to manage.
Rudy KuhnBusiness Manager, Fairfield College
Personally I think the Parent Teacher Calendar App is great!
Carol GrahamPrincipal, Otaua School
We have found the Parent teacher Calendar App to be really easy to use and provides a service for parents. Any additions to the calendar are made speedily.
Adrienne Subritsky Kaitaia College
For my own useage I find the Parent Teacher Calendar App it easy to use and very user friendly. The calendars all show through from our school site along with my personal appointments.
It's good to see our local businesses advertised on here though
Lesley Taumarunui Primary School
We at Taumarunui Primary School love the Parent Teacher Calendar App. It is a wonderful way for our parents to connect with the school and be kept in touch with our events. I love the way the team at your office are contacting me regularly for any updates on our activities.
Sincerely meant. You guys are amazing.
Steve Fennessy St Andrews Primary School
We have had a fantastic uptake from our community. I have had lots of comments from people saying that they are viewing and using the app.
Thanks again for all the work on this.
Ernie Buutveld Principal/Tumuaki, Havelock School
“PT Calendar App was quickly downloaded and installed by more than six times the school’s roll. The early adopters passed on the message and the whole school year was literally at people’s fingertips. The data from the school’s web calendar is used to populate the PTC and is updated every fortnight. Local firms have supported us and feature tastefully at the bottom of the pages. Calendar entries also contain the extra event information so a second click and presto, details are known. A great app.”
Christine Stuart Ararimu School
The PT App has been really good for the school. Most parents have the App and it has enabled them to keep up to date with the school events. When a parent has had a problem downloading the App or the school staff have seen a mistake on the school site the company have immediately supported the queries. As the Principal I enjoy it as my personal calendar syncs with the school calendar and I do not double book myself. Overall excellent.
Ian Poulter - Principal Bluestone School
Bluestone School has appreciated the speed with which the School Calendar app has been set up. Thanks to great communication and rapid response, having the app set up for us has been effortless on our behalf. Being an app that can run on Android and Apple devices has meant all of our parents can gain quick and reliable access to the important information our school calendar contains. In addition the app allows our parents to email in student absences meaning our staff can deal with these when they are able. Keeping the calendar on the app up to date is as simple as an email from us. It doesn’t get much easier or more efficient than that, ensuring our parents of the latest information on school happenings through the device they carry with them every day!
Nesan GovenderPrincipal, Ohinewai School
Thank you for the continued support for a great school resource!
