The app syncs with our school events calendar, and the daily notices that can be checked by parents and students alike. Maps, term dates, sporting information and newsletters also have their own sections and are simple to access. In addition, one of the app icons will enable the user to link easily to our website, the Mairehau High School Facebook page, an app user guide, bus route information and media. We can also add links to events happening now, such as school interview bookings and fundraisers.

One of the most utilised sections is the portal. From here, parents and students can have up-to-the-minute information regarding achievement, attendance, timetable information and NCEA progress.
