Skool Loop

Check out what our schools have to say...


Lincoln Heights School recently began using the Skool Loop app and we are very pleased with the result.

The app is an ideal electronic method of communicating with our school community in a timely fashion.

The free app is user friendly easily accessable.

The ongoing support from Skool Loop app staff is consistently efficient and responsive, making them a pleasure to interact with.

We would highly recommend using this app as a method of instant communication.”

Jill Taylor
Executive Officer - Lincoln Heights School

The app has been working really well for us, and that download number accords with the total amount of children at the school so that is good!”

Using Skool Loop has been fantastic! It has been so easy to set up and use.

I think most of our families are using it now and many have commented on how efficient it is.

Thank you for making it all so easy for us at this end.”

Kathryn Sim
Duntroon School

Love Love Love the app! We have lots more families on now and it is our go to for getting everything out. I use it most days.

Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to others.

Was also a great tool to use in the latest terror attack situation where we had to urgently get messages to parents. Parents really appreciated getting the text alert updates during the lockdown 👍👍”

Rebecca Taylor
Principal PA /BOT Secretary - Queenspark School

Our community are getting on board with the Skool app. Our office lady is good at checking in with people so I think that will help with the uptake. So easy to use.
Really appreciate the support we have had with the app.Thanks so much, Jo”

Jo Barlow
Principal - St James School

Skoolloop is a vital communications channel that we extensively used in the recent lockdown experienced in Christchurch. Having it as one of our methods to communicate with whānau, this ensured that the messaging got through multiple times each time a message was sent.”

Shane Buckner
Tumuaki | Principal - Wairakei School

The Skool Loop App has created a platform for the school to communicate effectively and efficiently with parents through the push notifications and also providing easy access to the weekly newsletter. In addition, parents have the convenience of messaging the school with their child/dren's absenteeism.”

Abraham Atherton
Principal | Tumuaki - St Albans Catholic School

We have only just started using the Push Notifications feature of Skool Loop this year and are finding it very beneficial so far.

It was especially useful during the prolonged lock down we recently experienced but we do need to get more parents on board with using it. I will keep promoting it in our newsletter so hopefully more parents will sign up.”

Pam Clemett
School Administrator - South New Brighton School

I love the push notifications

Easy to use and fast

Highly recommend.”

Scot Kinley
Principal - Bromley School

Favourite parts of the App:

Instant notices
Newsletters available to read
Absences can be sent via it
Calendar facility
School Contacts at your fingertip

To summarise - If all parents take the time to download the app information is available to them in an instant!

So exciting - Thank you”

Jenny
Mahana School

We looked at loads of different options – but decided in the end the free version was just as good, if not better than the others as it is NZ based and very simple to use.”

Daniel Wilson
PRINCIPAL - Nayland College

Took the about 30 minutes for it to be set up and it's super easy to use.”

Maria Paul
Office Manager - Waioneke School

We love the Skool Loop app - easy to use and parent friendly.”

Tania Pringle
Principal - Seddon School

So far the feedback has been very positive, with members of our board and community saying how useful the app is. It's interesting from our point of view, that some of our parents, who have traditionally been very hard to get permissions slips returned from, have been replying very quickly.”

Owen Corlett
Principal - Lichfield School

We love the new app, its going awesomely well. Love the permission slip and how easy it is to use.”

Troy Anderson
Principal - Rongotea School

I have appreciated the ease with which the communications are done - even the option of attaching flyers. The very first permission slip we used had immediate responses.”

Jono Hendricks
Principal - Glen Innes School

We are going really well with the app, felt we were doubling up a lot of information to start with but now that most families are using the app this should make communication so much easier.”

Sibylle
Mimi School

We find the app very beneficial and an awesome way to get information to the parents rapidly! I mean to say who doesn't have a smart phone these days!!??”

Wendy Jordan
Office Administrator, BOT Secretary - Pukeatua School

Snow days, sports days, cheese rolls, chess.
Instant messaging on Skool Loop’s the best.
Whether its a note about camp or rain.
Instant messages save a lot of pain!”

Brent Caldwell
Principal - Mornington School

Skool Loop app was able to be used the day we had to close our school because we had no water or power. We have a bore and a pump.

Without power we have no water.

So when Counties Power told me that it was a long term outage I was able to use the Skool Loop app because my phone battery was running out of power – (also had no power at home) to contact our parents.

We only had a few families turn up for school on that day, which demonstrated how effective the Skool Loop had been!”

Merillees Nicholls
Principal - Pukekohe East School

The instant alerts is reaching 57 families - that's most of our school and when deadlines are looming we use the alert and in come the responses.
The latest was fundraising pie order deadline - the forms came in!
Chess club tournament - used the alert to remind parents to sign the permission slips and in came the slips!

It is invaluable”

Linda Larsen
Principal - Te Poi School

Skool Loop has given our school another avenue to be able to communicate with our community. I love that we can set up groups to target the messages needing to be sent. Feedback from our school community has been positive so far. It's a great way to use today's popular technology to communicate.”

Tracey Moore
Kaiapoi Borough School

We love Skool Loop push notifications. We can easily reach our school community with notices regarding sport cancellations, delayed arrivals back from trips, important reminders and much more.

Thanks Skool Loop!”

Paul Tyson
Deputy Principal - Marshland School

We have used instant alerts for late buses and postponed events and cancelled sports training. It is so much easier and quicker to get the message to those who need it.”

Julie Staniland
Ohope Beach School

Recently Rahotu School community experienced a tornado that ripped through our village. Using SKOOL LOOP was a means in which we could make contact with our whanau and keep them informed of our school closure and when we had reopen. A great means of communication and instant.”

Brigitte Luke
Rahotu Primary School

We started using the free Skool Loop app earlier this term. Right from the start the Skool Loop team have been amazing.
Their communication with us has been excellent. They have been there to help us through each step of the process. The use of the Skool Loop app is incredibly simple and highly effective.
I wish we had started using this instant notification system sooner!”

Garth Powell
Assistant Principal - East Taieri School

Communication and service is excellent. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient.

Functions are great and easy to apply.
Yes, we would, and do recommend to other schools.

We love the app and so do the parents who have downloaded it. We are constantly reminding parents to download and when they do they are hooked, especially with reminders and cancellations.

On our Ngaruawahia Community Facebook page several parents have commented and encourage other parents to download.

Keep up the great work!”

Joss Annandale
Administration Officer - Waipa Primary School

Just a wonderful app to have available for our school community.
With a majority of our parents both working the app has been an amazing communication tool for them.
The permission feature is going to add even more to our great communication in 2018.
Thank you for the wonderful and prompt service too.”

Merillees Nicholls
Principal - Pukekohe East School

We love the Skool Loop app. It is so easy for us to add things to it as well!

During this last flooding and weather situation in our area, the Skool Loop App- Push Notifications has been an invaluable tool for us as a school.
Being able to notify all subscribing parents at the touch of a button has been a huge relief.

Thanks so much for this!”

Liz Marr
Office Administrator - St Joseph's Catholic School Matata

We have found the Skool Loop app to be extremely useful for our parent community. As most of our parents have smart phones, it is an easy way for them to check what events are happening in the school including the times and locations. The app is also an easy way for our parents to inform us of their child's absence. From a school's perspective, it is very simple to manage.”

Robyn Wood
Deputy Principal, St Clair School

Personally I think the Skool Loop App is great!”

Rudy Kuhn
Business Manager, Fairfield College

We have found the Skool Loop App to be really easy to use and provides a service for parents. Any additions to the calendar are made speedily.
Many Thanks”

Carol Graham
Principal, Otaua School

For my own useage I find the Skool Loop App it easy to use and very user friendly. The calendars all show through from our school site along with my personal appointments.

It's good to see our local businesses advertised on here though.”

Adrienne Subritsky
Kaitaia College

We have had a fantastic uptake from our community. I have had lots of comments from people saying that they are viewing and using the app.

Thanks again for all the work on this.”

Steve Fennessy
St Andrews Primary School

The Skool Loop App was quickly downloaded and installed by more than six times the school’s roll. The early adopters passed on the message and the whole school year was literally at people’s fingertips. The data from the school’s web calendar is used to populate the Skool Loop app and is updated every fortnight. Local firms have supported us and feature tastefully at the bottom of the pages. Calendar entries also contain the extra event information so a second click and presto, details are known. A great app.”

Ernie Buutveld
Principal/Tumuaki, Havelock School

The Skool Loop App has been really good for the school. Most parents have the App and it has enabled them to keep up to date with the school events. When a parent has had a problem downloading the App or the school staff have seen a mistake on the school site the company have immediately supported the queries. As the Principal I enjoy it as my personal calendar syncs with the school calendar and I do not double book myself. Overall excellent.”

Christine Stuart
Ararimu School

Bluestone School has appreciated the speed with which the Skool Loop app has been set up. Thanks to great communication and rapid response, having the app set up for us has been effortless on our behalf. Being an app that can run on Android and Apple devices has meant all of our parents can gain quick and reliable access to the important information our school calendar contains. In addition the app allows our parents to email in student absences meaning our staff can deal with these when they are able. Keeping the calendar on the app up to date is as simple as an email from us. It doesn’t get much easier or more efficient than that, ensuring our parents of the latest information on school happenings through the device they carry with them every day!”

Ian Poulter
Principal - Bluestone School

Thank you for the continued support for a great school resource!”

Nesan Govender
Principal, Ohinewai School

Hi Team, Parents are liking the Skool Loop App and prefer this to the School Website”

April Morris
Rapaura School

I am so impressed with the service we received from the staff at The Skool Loop App, once I gave them the go ahead it was only a matter of days before the App was running fully with our details. The staff were helpful with my questions throughout the whole process and I can see that updating our information in the future will be very easy. I'm sure this will be a great tool for us to communicate with our community, thank you to the Skool Loop team and, of course, the businesses that advertise with them which makes this service possible.”

Karen Hale
Executive Officer - Pirongia School

Just like to say how beneficial the Skool Loop App is for not only the school but for the parents. It is useful on our end to know that if they have the app downloaded they are receiving their newsletters (which is a great new feature) and any information which is important can be sent with push notifications. It also saves us on printing costs having to send information and newsletters home (and at times they aren't given by the children) and this is peace of mind knowing that if the parents have this downloaded they will receive the information. And it's free, for a small school such as ours it is definitely a bonus!!”

Liz Marr
Office Administrator - St Joseph's Catholic School Matata

Last week our bus broke down as it was about to leave school here in the afternoon. It was great to be able to text all parents to let them know !

Dealing with your staff is always quick and efficient.

We wouldn't be without it now and would recommend the App to other schools.”

Carol Graham
Principal - Otaua School

Our experience to-date with the Skool Loop app has been totally positive; from our first enquiry, explanations, working with sponsors, responding to emails - all first class.

The app is very user-friendly and that is also helping to engage our whole community.
We are very pleased that we had this app suggested to us from another school and highly recommend it to others.”

Frances Nimmo
Principal - Windwhistle School

A great way to keep parents informed about school events. An easy and straightforward app to use.”

Casper Kruger

The Skool Loop App has been a fantastic addition to how we communicate with parents. Parents constantly have the school calendar at their finger tips and utilise the absence part of the app regularly. The app saves our office staff time as they have less parents to ring and chase up the whereabouts of their child.

The Skool Loop App was a breeze to set up with extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. We as a school highly recommend the Skool Loop App.”

Hannah Reeves
Junior Room Teacher - St Patrick's School, Waimate

Our school has used the Skool Loop app since term 2 and we have been very pleased with the way it has worked in our school. We are a tiny school and I am a teaching principal and I have found it very easy and not at all time consuming to set up, Sharlene and her team worked hard to find our sponsors and even helped with promoting it within our school community. Parents have loved the reminders that they get in regards to events happening in the school and it is a very useful tool when we have to contact parents urgently such as when we had to cancel a recent sports event. We love it!”

Catherine Swney
Principal - St Joseph's Catholic School Paeroa

The app was very easy to use. Our parents and staff all completely engaged. Our sponsors were really happy too.”

Kathryn Munro
Taumarunui Primary

As soon as we got the App up and running, most of our parents were eager to download and use it. especially great for absence notification, saves a lot of "phoning around" and especially good for last minute or emergency alerts.
All other school information is available for parents to so they can plan their days around school events and commitments.”

Mary Howard
Office Administrator

Parents are already buzzing and full of praise for our new app. Great idea, awesome.

looking forward to using it , it’s so user friendly.”

Suneal Singh
Principal - St.Mary's School Palmerston North

Everyone I have spoken to has been extremely helpful, professional and very fast and efficient. There are other companies providing apps in New Zealand, as you know, but I am so glad we have gone with you.”

Leonie Sykes
Verran Primary School, Birkenhead, Auckland

We really like your product. We especially like the way you make the whole process easy for us.”

Chris Linders
St Josephs-Stratford school

We love the Skool Loop App and are really keen to rollover. Many of our parents use this facility and I have found the push notification system to be really useful in getting the message out promptly when necessary. We are also exceptionally appreciative of the sponsorship we have to enable us to continue with this service.”

Carol Graham
Principal, Otaua School

We have just started using this app and we are really liking it so far.
We love the ability for parents to contact us from the app for absentees etc which more parents are choosing to do as the weeks go by.

Loving it so far”
