Parents tired of retrieving wads of paperwork crumbled up at the bottom of their children’s school bags, or unable to view clunky PDFs on their mobile devices, will be relieved to hear that Schoolzine, one of Australia’s fastest growing eNewsletter platforms, used by hundreds of schools across Australia, has announced their expansion into New Zealand.

Schoolzine enables schools to digitize their important communications to parents and the wider school community and increase and monitor engagement.

Now offering their digital solutions to schools in all states and territories of Australia, Schoolzine has given over $600,000AUD in revenue back to Aussie schools through its innovative rebate system and sees New Zealand, which is geographically closer than many of its schools in Australia, as a logical new market.

Cockle Bay School in Auckland will be the first to welcome Schoolzine’s digital communication platform and Principal of Cockle Bay School, Graeme Lomas, says that they are “thrilled to be the founding school (in NZ) to implement Schoolzine’s digital platform.”

“As a school, we’re always looking at ways to engage with the parent communities. We’re looking forward to more NZ schools coming onboard,” he says.

Chief executive officer of Schoolzine, Phil Reardon, said he was “very excited to say ‘Kia Ora’ to NZ schools joining the Schoolzine whanau.”

Featuring this week at EduTECH, the southern hemisphere’s largest educational technology conference and exhibition in Brisbane, Reardon says New Zealand education sector representatives at the event showed strong interest in the solution.

“They seem particularly interested in the ability for the school to speed up the newsletter production process. The feedback from our Aussie schools is that it saves them a lot of time and money in getting their key messages out.”

ICT Woman of the Year for Australia, mother of two, and author of ‘No Kidding – Why Our Kids Know More About Technology Than Us & What We Can Do About It’ Yvette Adams, who is originally from New Zealand says she hopes Kiwi schools will take up the opportunity Schoolzine expanding to New Zealand poses to school communities there.

“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.”

Schoolzine will be attending the NZ Principals’ Federation Conference in Wellington, New Zealand on June 30, having meetings with Waikato Principal’s Association and the Ministry of Education and other interested potential partners during the visit.

Whilst in New Zealand they will also be on the scout for local talent to recruit for their NZ based team, and to find a suitable location to set up their New Zealand office.
