See all the detail you need, including links to original information

No more wasting your time trawling through emails to find the missing detail! Each entry includes what to do, where to go and what to bring as well as the link to the original information like emails, links to the school portal or location links of sports fields to maps!


Be on top of things by ticking off your parent task entries

Parent tasks like book parent teacher interviews or complete school camp forms, can be ticked off once completed. With your summary to do list there is no more of that niggling worry!

Get to associated entries quickly

Some events like school camps have a number of associated tasks or activities that go with it. Everything from 'complete camp info form' to 'complete medical forms' and 'check great list', let along the actual event on the day. And each with different times and due deadlines! To make it easy to manage, myWhānau connects all these entries so they can be access with one tap.

Push notifications, deadlines and reminders

To ensure you don't miss an event or task, deadlines and reminders along with push notifications are automatically added to your calendar. Deadlines are added the day before they are due so you have time to action.


Assign entries and tasks

With one tap you can assign an event or task to another family member. Assign to your child and it is added automatically to their synced calendar. Say your partner is doing pick up from music lesson this week, assign the task to them and their face or initial will appear under the entry.

Hear What Others Say

“I have kids at multiple schools so receive a crazy amount of information every day from lots of sources and apps. With my Family Calendar Assistant, all of my kids' school/activity info links into my calendar daily. It is so much easier! thoroughly recommend this service - I really don't know how they provide this at such a low cost.”


Pam McPherson
Parent of 2

"Every evening at 7pm I am grateful I have this service. Before myWhānau I would get endless emails from the 2 different schools my kids attend. It was a nightmare keeping on top of permission forms, camp lists... where was that email with the address for the school carnival? Now my diary is automatically updated with activities my kids do and at 7pm I get alerts on actions, notices that apply to my kids. The stress of staying on top of all this has been completely removed. Highly recommend it.”


Natasha Barfield
Parent of 2

"I absolutely LOVE this app, it has changed my life! As a full time working mum of two rambunctious boys I need all the help I can get. Not only do I get help with managing the school stuff but the app reminds me about their sporting activities too. I know which field I'm to be at, what time I'm t be there and a map which tells me how to get there. Who wouldn't be happy about that!!"


Michelle Long
Parent of 2

" I have been able to save 3 hours a week and rather than spending that time managing my kid's calendars, I can actually spend that time with my kids".

Nikki Quail.

"The favourite feature for me is the fact that I know myWhānau has my back, they are my backstop. myWhānau has given me back control of my life."
