Fernside School App
Fernside School now have a Mobile App for notices, events and other important School messages. To download the app for free on iPhone or Android click this link from your phone or tablet: http://fernsideschool.apps.school.nz/share/
The intention is for this app to become a major component in the school's communication system with parents and allows for alerts to be sent instantly to either the whole school community in the case of an emergency, or for access to class and school newsletters, as well as other notices such as sport, music or administrative notices - you chose what alerts you wish to receive so you only receive those alerts that are of interest to you. Absentees can be reported by phone or email through the app, a full list of school contacts is available as well as a definitive school calendar of all events.
We hope that many of you will make use of this app as it is designed for you the parent community to make communication between the school and yourselves much more efficient and streamlined.
