School App Launched!
We are delighted to be able to introduce you to another new development in our communications - our new St Mary’s Grammar School Magherafelt, school-app.
More than ever, communications with parents is of vital importance and the school-app is another creative step in our efforts to provide the best and most convenient ways of reaching out to you and the wider school community.
With over 95% of the population now using smart phones, we wanted to utilise this channel of communication to reach people who increasingly expect to have services provided from their phone.
The application belongs entirely to the school, allowing us to deliver a variety of communications in real time, keeping parents and the wider community updated with current news and events in St. Mary’s Grammar School. It will provide immediate information to our parents and the wider community on significant school or specific year group events.
Search for ‘St Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt’ in the Apple and Google Play Stores.
We will continue to use our C2K text messaging service and letters to communicate with our parents. However, we foresee the school-app as an additional interactive method of connecting with parents. The app may be download after searching for ‘St Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt’ in the Apple and Google Play Stores.
The app, when downloaded will have the title ‘St. Mary’s, GS’. It is free to install and should be intuitive to use thereafter. Remember to ‘Allow’ notifications when prompted to receive the latest updates.
