We are very excited to announce the launch of our new Parent App, FlexiBuzz. We are committed to strengthening the communication between the school and home, particularly between parents and teachers. The introduction of FlexiBuzz opens up a new channel where the school and teachers can communicate directly with parents in a timely and convenient manner.
The FlexiBuzz App runs on both Android and Apple devices and can also be used via a website on any internet-connected device. The App is free to download and there is no cost involved with the registration.
We would like to thank our Parent Fundraising Group who raised the funds to purchase FlexiBuzz at the Family Dance Night earlier this year.

FlexiBuzz has three distinct features designed to help our parent community to be better informed.
The Newsfeed function is used to send bulk information to parents. This might include information for the whole school, a year level or group of year levels, or an individual class. These messages cannot be replied to but may contain attachments for further information
An example of a News Feed item might be a message about House Cross Country sent to a group of year levels with a copy of a parent volunteer slip attached to it.
The Calendar will contain information about whole school, year level and class events. An event may be set up with a notification to remind parents 24 hours before they occur.
An example of a Calendar item could be a Kids Matter Assembly with a notification on Sunday.
The Chat function of the App allows parents to communicate directly with their children’s classroom teacher. Once a conversation has commenced, parents and teachers can reply directly to one another. Users will receive a notification whenever there is a new message in a conversation.
An example of a Chat item could be a note about your child receiving a Resilience token for persisting on a difficult maths problem.
The school have developed guidelines for the use of FlexiBuzz. These take into consideration our role as an eSmart school and aim to protect all users of the App. Users will have to read and agree to these guidelines before they will be able to use the App.
