MEDIA RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mar 2018

Parents who want to be fully involved in their child’s schooling are actually missing important milestones and events due to inefficient communication.

The Courier Mail previously reported that more than 50 per cent of parents rely solely on their child to tell them about important dates, eventuating in key events being bypassed completely by parents.

Schools are now becoming wise to the pitfalls of using social media as an engagement tool and as such this is fuelling Schoolzine’s constant growth. Schoolzine has made improving school digital communication their core purpose.

A major supporter of the education sector for the past decade, the Sunshine Coast headquartered company now has schools using their platform in 19 countries around the world.

The Schoolzine platform enables school leaders with the digital tools required to successfully communicate with their communities and meet the parent engagement demands for today – and the future.

Schoolzine is celebrating their milestone achievements, as one of the fastest growing digital communication platforms used by thousands of schools and organisations, at the Innovation Centre on Thursday 15th March.

Schoolzine invites past, present and future schools and the business community to join the Innovation Centre in recognising Schoolzine’s achievements and to attend a free School Innovation Event, hosted by Schoolzine and proudly sponsored by the Innovation Centre and Sunsuper.

This exclusive event will showcase: • The Mayor’s Telstra Technology Awards • Regional innovation programs for schools and youth • Projects and initiatives for parent engagement in schools • The presentation of appreciation awards to Schoolzine foundation schools. The event references Schoolzine’s foundations at the Innovation Centre’s entrepreneurial hub, where they were established in 2007 as a solution to real problems that parents were facing with their children’s school communication.

Phil Reardon, Schoolzine’s CEO and founder, was at his son’s football game when another father, who happened to be a school principal, expressed his frustration in communicating with his school’s community.

From a parents’ perspective Mr Reardon confesses, “As a Dad, I felt out of the loop with my child’s education and school because I wasn’t receiving direct communication and when I did get my hands on the newsletter, I wasn’t engaged at all.”

Mr Reardon felt like he had a solution to a problem he understood first-hand and saw this as a unique business opportunity. He invited local principals and pitched Schoolzine to transform their communications – 80 percent of them immediately signed up.

Schoolzine continues to innovate their platform, pushing the envelope for schools to benefit from their dynamic offerings. A fast-growing tech company, Schoolzine has no signs of slowing down, attracting more schools every day to improve their communications and parent engagement.
