KiwiSchools during COVID-19

At KiwiSchools, we are working closely with our customers to help support their community engagement efforts in one of the most challenging times New Zealand schools have ever faced.

Combining our education industry insight with our flexible, innovative and agile approach, we are spending our days (working from home) on developing and implementing solutions and enhancements that will enable our customer schools to effectively communicate with their parent community as they navigate the new world of remote schooling.

Now, more than ever, effective community engagement is key. Let’s work together for a successful outcome in these challenging times.

If there is anything we can do for you – whether it’s simply additional support at this time, or extending the capability of your website through additional pages or functions, please get in touch with us on

COVID-19 Updates


Back to school: supporting your students and community through the next wave of change.

Two months ago things changed dramatically and they changed fast. There was a lot of uncertainty and anxiety for school communities. The country went into lockdown. The dust settled.

As we prepare to re-open schools on Monday, it is just as important to support children and families in transitioning back into a ‘modified’ normal. Undoubtedly, a mix of emotions will flood in. Excitement and relief may battle anxiety and caution. After an extended period of feeling safe in their bubbles, coming back to their pre-lockdown environments may leave some children feeling vulnerable.
