What's New

Over all enhancements

* Electronic Mobile Forms
Now you can instantly fill out most of your school forms (e.g. absent notes, late notes or excursion permissions) and submit them from your mobile phone without needing a computer or printer. Maintain a copy of these forms in your email and avoid the risk of losing valuable information.

App Description

Welcome to Banks Public School on your iPhone and iPod Touch!

The best way to always keep in touch and be informed about what's happening at your school. With carefully thought out features by parents for parents, students and other members of the school community. Keeping it simple and straight makes it sharp and reliable.

* Active Academic & Activities Calendar *

You'll see all the events that are planned at the school. It keeps you in the loop and also reminds you before an event comes up so that you can make sure you're ready for it. Never miss an event just because you didn't know about it. You can also filter by groups and categories so you only see events relevant to you.

* Instant Push Notifications *

Receive blazingly instant messages from the school for pertinent information and reminders about due items. Customise your group subscription to receive only relevant messages.

* Photos *

Oh this is our favourite. A photo is worth a million words. Get immersed into the experience at an excursion or a kids footy game or a performance at the school. You can save the moments on your Photos app and then share it any way you like.

* News *

For everyone who read their news in the most obscurest places (that includes us too), you can now read all the news that the school sends on your iPhone. You can bookmark various sections, zoom into specific articles, email it to yourself and believe it or not, print it too (don't do it too often, we're all about saving trees).

* Documents *

Ever got lazy about reading rules, policies and other boring but important information on the website? Well now they'll actually live in your pocket so you can draw them out western style and quote them whenever and wherever you are.

Video Content Feed
Just when you thoughts photos were enough and were worth a million words. Imagine the potential of videos and the message you can convey in a few minutes or seconds. You can share private and public YouTube, Vimeo and Ted.com videos with your community.

Webpage Share URLS
Ever thought of sharing that great article that you read on the Internet with your parents? Well now you can. Any web article, blog, news or a social page can be shared. For sure it’s easier than sharing links on paper or even an email.
