LAUNCH OF THE NEW SCHOOL APP
We are pleased to let you know that we now have a new school mobile app that you can download for free from either the Apple or Google Play app stores.
You can download the app by searching for “St Gregory’s” and download the app that displays our school logo.
The app provides instant access to term dates, events, newsletters, booking forms, links to the school website, absence form and many more features.
We will also be using the app to send out push notifications. These are messages that are sent directly to all those parents that have downloaded the app. As push notifications are free for us to send this may replace our text messaging service at some point.
If you own an i-Phone, when you download the app for the first time it will ask the following questions:
1. Offline Caching.
This lets you view certain information even if you haven’t got a signal. You can select Yes or No.
2. Allow access to your location.
This is a standard Apple request. We by no means know or have access to anyone’s location but you need to select Yes in order to receive push notifications from the school.
3. The next message is to then enable push notifications.
This is important that you select NOTIFY ME.
4. The last message will say “The school will like to send you Notifications” please press OK.
WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD THE APP FOR THE FIRST TIME PLEASE REGISTER YOUR DETAILS SO WE CAN HAVE A RECORD OF THE PARENTS USING THE APP.
