Rowlatts Hill Primary School provides education to children between 3 and 11. Their mission is to prepare each student to be successful in Secondary School.
Communications with their student’s parents and carers was via telephone or by letter. Both methods were time consuming, costly, and slow. Looking for a better alternative, they chose to use fastsms’ NetMessenger, our cloud based SMS service accessed via any browser.
Since they began using NetMessenger the school has been able to send bulk messages to groups of parents simultaneously. “The system works well for us as a time saver and thus saves us valuable time and resources. In schools money is very tight, therefore any saving we make can be better directed towards the children,” says Grant Penton.
In addition to sending bulk messages, parents and carers are able to reply to the school via text as well providing a faster, more efficient form of communications with their school community.
