PCSchool & myWhānau partner to make family calendar management simple

Posted by Michelle Forster on 7 October 2021 3:28:25 PM

PCSchool, the leading school management platform, now partners with myWhānau, a School Calendar Assistant that improves communication and streamlines family calendar management.

myWhānau is the first calendar-based school communication app of its kind. It aggregates information from school emails, portals and websites and automatically creates diary entries that include all the details, including links to further information.

Everything from permission slips and parent-teacher interviews to class sports days, excursions and special classroom activities is captured, so parents can see exactly what they or their child needs to do on any given day at the tap of a button.

“As Mum to three kids, I felt stressed and disorganised trying to stay on top of communications from multiple schools. My vision was to give busy families precious time back and reduce the frustration of juggling information from different sources,” said Michelle Forster, Founder and CEO at myWhānau.  

“PCSchool’s partnership with myWhānau empowers schools and families to manage communication, events and tasks from one trusted, secure platform,” said Robert Radley, Executive General Manager at Nelnet International.      

“We know juggling the family calendar is a significant source of stress for many households. Now, families don’t have to worry about missing key moments in their child’s K-12 school journey.

“This partnership supports our aspiration to build relationships with customer-focused brands who share our vision to drive success for schools.”
