“To the people responsible for Skoolbag. In my 30 + years in schools, Skoolbag has been the best thing to ever come out to help in the area of communication. We recently had a flood and via Skoolbag everybody in the school evacuated by 9.30am (never happened this efficiently before)”. “It is a fantastic product”.
Just letting you know that we launched skoolbag about a month ago and this along with our own facebook page, website, blogs and newsletters is proving not only a wonderful addition to our school as a tool but also in the light of social media , an added necessity that has been long overdue.
Our whole school community has embraced Skoolbag as its proven to be a great communicator and easy tool to use.
So user friendly....thankyou.
In the past three weeks we have been involved in a Community Bank Grants competition and due to the work of Skoolbag...we won the grant. It was all based on voting and due to the power of Skoolbag and People Power through social media we would not have won this grant. It was worth 5,000 to us and through the use of skoolbag everyone in the community got on board and we won by about 1200 votes.
We were not the biggest school by far but through skoolbag we were able to communicate, encourage and keep momentum going with our community. Our local newspaper was also out last week to do an article on our school about skoolbag.
This was completely separate from the grant, just an Interest item in the local paper. Some free press coverage. I will send you a copy of this article tomorrow.
Just wanted to let you know how powerful Skoolbag is”.
“I would like to say that your app and service is exceptional. It has been a roaring success here at my school; my school staff have access to send alerts, my P & C for their events and it is used frequently. Children who have mobile phones at school have the app to keep them informed and one of our classes is trialling a bring your own device program and each child has the app to receive reminders about assignments and upcoming events. I also encourage other community members eg local business owners to download the app to keep in touch with events and goings on here at school. Congratulations and thanks for such a great product”.
“Skoolbag is awesome, you guys rock J The Skoolbag app you’ve developed is terrific, very easy to use and maintain, and you guys have set the bar for the myriad other app companies out there. Your staff are engaging and very knowledgeable, being able to ask any question of whomever answers the phone is a tremendous bonus”.
“You may have heard that Wellington got blasted by a major storm last week with rail and bus services out etc. We used the skoolbag app to push notifications to parents about the storm and how it was affecting the school – very positive feedback from the parents.”.
