"...we used your system twice yesterday [November 2016 earthquake] – each time I used the app on my phone and it was so simple and effective. I am included in the text message and received it within a minute of me pressing proceed! Then I could concentrate on other matters knowing that no children would turn up at school (hopefully – and none did). Thanks again – the system was a great success for Northland School and its community."
Jeremy Edwards, Principal
Northland School (Wellington), Te Kura o Orangi Kaupapa
"Just wanted to say thank you for such a fabulous system. As a Wellington based school we found School-links an invaluable tool last week with earthquakes, floods and many parents enquiring about school closures etc. We have had great feedback from parents about how the communications from our school were excellent last week, and that they knew exactly what was going on here."
Megan Chisholm, Office Admin

What schools say about School-links
“I sat down on a Saturday morning and sent out one bulk text to all the parents I wanted to see and within a few minutes I had 10 parents who had replied to me.”
Doug Ewing, Deputy Principal
Wanganui City College
“We had a really big earthquake... I put a message out straight away to say everyone was safe and I am inundated with replies from parents to say how they so much appreciated it.”
Viv Mills, Principal's Secretary
“Parent-Teacher evenings are a joy to organise. The parents LOVE being able to book their own appointments online.”
Kate Fuller, Director e-Learning
Most of New Zealand has been battered by storms over the last few weeks, from ice and snow closing roads to rain causing flooding, slips and states of emergency being declared across multiple cities and regions. It is a timely reminder for New Zealand schools to review their communications plans around disruptive weather events, and how they can could impact their school community – such as forced closures or creating dangerous travel conditions.
