Skoolbag App

Covenant now has the Skoolbag App!

All parents with a smart phone (iphone, Android or Windows) can now download the Skoolbag App to have direct contact with us via with their phone.

Q. Why would parents want to do this?

A. Via your app, you will be able to:

– receive and return permission notes for excursions,

– receive alerts about your child/ren’s class events,

– submit absence notifications,

– get school newsletters.

– receive Alerts and RSVP to upcoming events.

 

Q. Is this a security risk in any way?

A. No. We have created an entirely locked system, which means you will not have access to Covenant’s Skoolbag until we send you a unique invitation and password, via your email address. Members of the public will not be able to access content sent to Covenant parents.

 

Q. If I don’t want the app or don’t have a smart phone, what about me?

A. That’s ok. Every message has the ability to be sent via email and phone simultaneously. If you don’t have the app, you should still receive the message via your email with a PDF copy attachment of forms (eg. excursion notes).

 

Q. I want the App! What do I do now?

A. Parents are registered to use Skoolbag App during the enrolment process. Once your child commences at Covenant, a username and password will be sent to the email address(es) provided by parent(s).
