School Star

Reduce Your SMS Costs

With School Star’s 2-way secure in-app messaging to individual or all parents, your school will dramatically cut existing SMS message costs, because current SMS messages are replaced with School Star’s in-app messages.

Automatic Message Delivery Switchover To SMS

Not all Parents download School Apps. For these parents, or parents with the app but no mobile data or Wi-Fi or who don’t read the in app message in 5 minutes, School Star will automatically send your messages by SMS instead (including all pictures and file attachments). This means you always reach 100% of your parents with School Star!

Restricted access to only your school community

Only your registered Parents, Students, Staff, Old Scholars/Alumni and other known school community members have access to the app and your school data. No more sharing your internal school issues with the public. Everyone else is locked out!

2-Factor User Security & Account Verification

School Star uses a 2 step new account activation and verification process. Firstly, parents need to enter their name and mobile number. Once these details are validated against your school’s existing database, School Star sends a PIN Access Code by SMS for a second verification.

White-Label – Your School Branding

Completely brand School Star as your own! Insert you school logo, and School Star looks like you own App. But because it’s a standard app for all schools, you receive continuous upgrades and new enhancements automatically and for free.

School Star

Live Facebook Style News Feed

School Apps need to be engaging, fast and easy for parents to use. When parents open School Star, they instantly get engaged because they see all the latest School News in a Facebook style News Feed, Busy parents can set filters to see only the information that’s relevant to their family.

Beautiful Design – Enhance Your School Brand & Image

School Star was designed Australia’s leading app designers and user Interface experts. It’s a beautiful app that you brand as your own – so it looks custom built just for your school!  It’s really simple, elegant and easy to use – and will enhance your school brand and image.

Qkr! By MasterCard® Integration
