I have been blown away by what Schoolzine has accomplished so far and I look forward to seeing stronger parent teacher communication in Australian schools.
The Federation of Parents and Friends in Catholic Schools Queensland has been working with Schoolzine for the past nine years. During this time we have assisted Schoolzine in turning an idea into a platform. One that specifically meets the needs of schools. Education departments all over the world are building complex cloud based portals and administration systems but they have not been able to solve the challenge of parent engagement to the extent that Schoolzine does. The issue of how to effectively communicate and engage parents of school aged children is a global challenge but one that has great benefits to our children if achieved. Schoolzine is uniquely placed in the education sector and in my opinion is another example of a home grown Australian company with a global opportunity. Schoolzine has shown itself to not only be a regional employer of youth but a company committed to providing work experience and internships to students looking to gain experience before entering the workforce. Our Federation will continue to assist Schoolzine in their growth, including introductions to our network overseas.
We are excited to be part of schoolzine and are working to increase our newsletter content in the up coming months. Your support has be absolutely excellent.
One of our goals at the Queensland College of Teachers is to communicate better with our teachers, other stakeholders and the wider public. Our eNewsletters are designed, formatted and distributed by Schoolzine for 100,000 registered teachers. Schoolzine’s efficient delivery through their contemporary mediums helps keep us relevant. I commend the Schoolzine team on their willingness and ability to help us communicate in a more effective and engaging way.
We distribute our eNewsletters and communication using the DIY newsletter portal. Schoolzine has made the publishing of a first class newsletter easy. Communication to our 500 school Principals is paramount.The staff are friendly and helpful and are contactable at almost any time, any issues I have had were solved immediately. Workflow is excellent and this helps me to meet my deadlines. The whole Schoolzine partnership has been extremely positive and our members have been impressed by the quality and presentation of the newsletter. Most recently we have signed up for Schoolzine to host our website and this has gone very smoothly and using the website and adding items has become extremely easy. I have no hesitation recommending Schoolzine and encourage school leaders to contact them and see how easy it is.
The Waikato Principal's Association has been using Schoolzine to publish its weekly newsletter for over a year. School leaders love being able to receive the newsletter on their computer or on a mobile device; they can read it anywhere, at a time that suits them. Schoolzine is a very professional company to work with.
The Australian Catholic Primary Principals’ Association is the peak national body for leaders in Catholic Primary Schools across Australia. We are currently working with Schoolzine to build and develop our communications platform with all our members. Schoolzine has assisted us to create our new interactive website, newsletters and streamzine, which they have done with great enthusiasm and diligence. Staff always check in to see if everything is going well and more importantly they ensure the product we receive meets our needs
We not only save time, but have a vastly superior newsletter which is emailed instantaneously. Just brilliant!
We are very happy with our first edition of our QASEL newsletter thank you! Thanks to the Schoolzine team for ensuring it went out on time. I have received emailed positive feedback already, although I believe many may not have necessarily opened it yet before end of the last busy day!
Schoolzine has allowed the Australian Secondary Principals’ Association (ASPA) to effectively and professionally engage with our members. The quality and presentation of each newsletter is faultless and praised by ASPA’s members, all we have to do is supply the content. I have no hesitation recommending Schoolzine to educational organisations and school leaders.
Schoolzine is an excellent team to work with, no matter who you speak to you receive the same level of professional service and support. The Schoolzine team is easy to talk to, professional, friendly and provide prompt follow ups. No question or request is ever an issue.
Hooray... school news online!!! Well done. I really like the idea that friends and family can subscribe too as part of our family (dad) is working overseas and many families like ours are in a Fly in Fly out work situation. Perhaps some of your wonderful computer students can have some input to take a bit of the time consuming work from the staff.
Being able to read my son’s newsletter on my phone is great and the fact the picture galleries and videos work is amazing. I can’t wait for the next edition.
Thank you for your support of the RSPCA. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.
Top Shots Fun Park is an amusement park located on the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland. We ran an advertisement across selected Sunshine Coast schools with a special offer for students and parents. After working with Schoolzine's talented Sales and Design team, we had a huge response. We received a great number of direct enquiries from the ad, from both new and old customers reconnecting. Money well spent!
Always Interactive has been advertising with Schoolzine now since 2009. Being able to target the parents of small to medium businesses within a 20 km radius has greatly benefitted our brand. Being an online medium makes it a cost effective and highly measurable form of marketing and we would recommend this avenue to anyone looking for alternative to print media. The Schoolzine team also set a benchmark for great customer service.
Schoolzine really helped us directly connect with teachers, parents and grandparents who are part of local schooling communities. These are a really important markets for us at The Events Centre and the team at Schoolzine made this relationship stronger. The system is self-manageable and so easy to use. I have no hesitation on recommending Schoolzine to any business.
Since opening our front doors last year, we now have close to 150 members who make up the parents, teachers and students of the local schools, which is a clear indication that Schoolzine is a fantastic method of local advertising to target and further develop future business opportunities.
Our business targets home based business owners and before we used Schoolzine we were ringing each individual school asking to place advertising in each of their newsletters. This was so time consuming that we stopped using it as part of our promotions. As a result we struggled to find participants on the Sunshine Coast who were interested in attending our Social media workshops. We decided to talk with Schoolzine and Phil helped us to work out the right content and graphics to capture our target audience. We ran one series of advertising and achieved our highest number of attendees to a single workshop.
Schoolzine's response to my initial enquiry was professional, informative and followed up by the same person throughout my entire business with Schoolzine. I felt I had individual attention and Dion was always available and happy to help when I had any questions. The advertising system is easy to use and effective and I have no hesitation in recommending Schoolzine to any business looking for advertising solutions that reach out to parents.
The whole team at Schoolzine were very helpful when it came time to decide if I wanted to have an advertisement in Varsity College's School eNewsletter. They also always kept me in mind when new spots became available with other Schools. They are prompt with their communication and always look out for my best interests. I believe it is a great way of advertising and have no problems with recommending it to friends and colleagues.
I know as a busy mum a digital newsletter that you can read on your mobile phone is a much better solution, and I love the fact that Schoolzine are philanthropic in their approach and that schools can use its introduction as a fundraising mechanism.
