These Apps are a great resource. We recommend trying out our new school app, School Stream, as it provides an easy, portable connection between home and school:
This FREE app enables you to easily notify the school office of student absences and we use it to let you know any important school notices. In time, we will customise it to particular groups - such as the First XI Hockey team, or the Year 12 History class - so if there is a notice that you need to know that applies to that group (e.g. a change of venue, practice cancelled) you can receive direct notification of it.We’d appreciate any feedback you might have when using this new tool. This app does not replace our current forms of communication, it just adds to them. So if you are happy with current arrangements, there is no reason to change.

Developed by a former Rangitikei College staff member with help from former students, we recommend this FREE App for Senior School students. It’s an NCEA credit record, diary and career planner all in one easy-to-use app. MyBlueprint is the new and improved version of the older NCEA Pal.
