Download our School App


Whitney Street School has a school app and it’s amazing. It is really important that families download this app to their phones as this is how we will be sending through many of the messages that we currently do via texts. Our present system crashes when we try and send messages to our families on mass so it can’t be relied upon. Many schools around the region (including Bohally Intermediate and Springlands School) are using School Apps and swear by it.

Our App can be found by searching ‘Whitney Street School’ in the Playstore (for Android users) or the App Store (for Apple users). When you download the app, please subscribe to Alerts from the classes/groups that your child belongs to. If you want to subscribe to groups later on, you can do this via the ‘Alerts Subscriptions’ which is in the Menu. (Top Left.)

This is also the way we would like you to inform us of absences. This system will streamline the morning routine for Tanya so that she can easily see who is away and why.

In the App, you have access to the school calendar which clearly indicates important dates that are coming up in the term. You will also be able to contact teachers, view our noticeboard, access the website and see the newsletters etc.

We are pretty excited about this and are more than happy to assist you getting it set up. Most of the staff around the place can lend a hand so pop in and we will set you up.
