Calendar App

We are pleased to be able to provide to you the Parent Teacher Calendar App. - we believe this will be a most valuable tool for communication between your school and parents.

To download the App, just search your Play Store or App Store for the Parent Teacher Calendar App. This is a free download.  Ensure that if asked, you accept Notifications, as this enables the ‘Push’ Notifications feature.  Once downloaded, select your Region (Waikato), then your school.  Next, tap on the calendar tab and wait a few seconds for your school information to load.  (This is also how you ‘refresh’ the calendar)

For your convenience, PTC App. pulls your own dates from your personal calendar and combines these with school dates so you can view them all at once.  Please don’t be alarmed if you notice your personal calendar entries displayed alongside School events.  School entries display as red dots on the calendar, and these are publicly viewable. Your personal calendar entries will display as blue dots, and are only viewable by yourself, on your own device.
