Parents want to see relevant interesting news and activities, focused on their child’s experiences, in a visually appealing format. With ePublisher, you can create and distribute engaging school newsletters, without requiring a lot of technical knowledge or spending too much time.
ePublisher is the only service that enables staff members to directly contribute to the school’s newsletter within one platform. Sharing videos, photos, news and other interactive content from the classroom has never been easier.
ePublisher is a total re-think of the traditional way of content creation
Key staff members from around the school log into one online system from anywhere (home or school).
They create the most engaging, visually interesting newsletter content, easily.
They submit their articles to the newsletter coordinator at the school for approval (and any corrections).
The coordinator simply adds the articles to an issue and publishes to parents instantly. Job done.
Being fully owned and designed here in Australia, ePublisher has been built from the ground up exclusively for schools, to enhance communication.
Implementing ePublisher at your school is fast and painless. If you’re curious to see it in action, we do onsite demos for SE Qld schools and internet demos for all other schools.
Create separate eNews templates for different groups. Your P&C, Staff and Parent newsletters can each have their own customised style.
