Error in Starlight News

There was an error in last week’s Starlight News. House Music practises are on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings, not Monday mornings and Friday afternoons as published. Apologies for any confusion!

St Matthew’s Collegiate School Smartphone App

By | Uncategorized

St Matthew’s is very excited to have launched a a new smart phone app. This app will revolutionise the way we communicate with you and your child by allowing us to deliver key information straight to your smartphone or device.

The app is free to download and compatible with IOS and Android phones and tablets. Features include:

  • Unlimited free push notifications
  • Important website links
  • Click to call/email absentee reports
  • List of important school contacts
  • Kamar calendar integration
  • Kamar notices integration
  • Premium custom app design
  • Group alerts – you select the activities your child is involved to subscribe for alerts. Easy and direct way to get updates about sports and cultural practices, events, trips and other activities.

The app is fairly intuitive, but there are complete instructions on our website for anyone who would like more information.

To download the app, go to your app store and search St Matthew’s Collegiate School. After the download is completed and you’ve opened the app, it will ask you to select the alerts you wish to subscribe for. You can do this immediately, or just open the app and subscribe to alerts later. Instructions about how to do this can be found on our website.

Parents and students will still be able to access all of the content featured on the app, such as notices and the calendar, via their KAMAR portal, so parents and students who do not wish to use the app or do not have smartphones can still easily access the information online.

If you have any questions or issues with app, please feel free to contact Alison Penn on alisonp@stmatts.school.nz.
