SVC Push Notification System

The St Virgil's App

The Publicity Committee of the College Board has spent a considerable amount of time and energy examining how best to communicate with members of our community. This has led to the introduction of Parent paperwork which has been extremely well received by parents. However in talking with parents and analysing research, it is apparent that people's mobile phones are the major device used to quickly access information. 

To address this the College has this week launched its App, which parents can download free from the front page of the website or by visiting the App Store or Google Play.

The App provides the following easy to use features -

• Real time Notifications

• Latest News & Events

• Sports News

• Report Absent

• Request Tour

• Facebook

• Contact Us

• Favourites/Read Later

 To register, simply type in your email address and select a password for yourself.

To receive push messages and notifications you need to make sure when you install the "St Virgil's College" app that you:

• “Accept” push notifications

• “GPS” location services is turned “ON”

• “Sound“ is turned “ON” 

The College will be very mindful not to bombard you with push messages but it will be an invaluable method to remind you of College events - and unlike an SMS message it's free!

So please download and enjoy the App and tell us what you think via the Contact Us feature!
