A Revolutionary School Calendar Organiser

The myWhānau School Calendar Assistant is a secure service that automatically captures, organises and diarises school communications. Parents are better informed and organised, reducing the admin load for schools.

Busy parents are struggling to stay on top of school communications. Important information is missed.

Whether an excursion permission slip hasn’t been returned, payment for camp is outstanding, or parent-teacher interviews are forgotten, it creates stress for parents and extra work for teachers and the school office.

Word cloud green and grey
With the myWhānau School Calendar Assistant, parents no longer need to stay across multiple communication channels and manually add school parent tasks and events to their phone’s calendar. And schools have confidence that parents won’t miss things, with information captured seamlessly. Families are able to see exactly what they or their child needs to do on any given day or week with a single tap.

Organised, informed parents means less work for schools

The myWhānau School Calendar Assistant automatically captures and aggregates information from school group emails, newsletters, websites, and portals and creates personalised calendar entries that include all the details parents need to be organised. 

More organised parents means schools no longer need to broadcast information across multiple channels.
