What is School Circle?
Welcome to School Circle! This is the place for parents, grandparents & alumni to Connect, Collaborate and Contribute to your school community.

The notion of an old-fashioned business directory is just the starting point for School Circle.

Simple to join and easy to use, it can:

1. help you raise funds
2. help you build community and
3. help you run your Parent Association even more effectively.

Fund Raising

While School Circle is free to your Parent Association, you may choose to charge businesses to list in the on-line directory, giving you a potential revenue stream each year. You decide how much to charge the businesses and we talk to you about a percentage coming to School Circle to cover our costs. The details for each school will be listed in your school's listing criteria.

In our experience, the online business directory makes it so much easier to find sponsors for your school events, giving you yet another significant benefit. The businesses also benefit by the increased exposure and are in a position to offer the community "specials" which can be highlighted each week.

Building Community

It's free to create a Profile on School Circle as is adding Notices to the noticeboard and Events to the Calendar. People begin to work out who's who and what strengths and assets lie within the community.

Circles within the main School Circle can also be created, for example for the choir, the netball team or each individual Class. Members of each club or class can be emailed with the click of one button, making information-sharing far simpler and quicker.

Running the Parent Association

School Circle lets you store minutes of past meetings and information on how to run events in one secure place, so new members of the Parent Association don't have to reinvent the wheel each time they take over the reins.

Next Steps

If a School Circle doesn't yet exist for your school (check on the home page for your school's logo) just click on "Can't Find Your School?" and we'll set you up with one.

If your school already has a School Circle, simply click on Become a Member from your school's page. Have a photograph of yourself ready and you can create a profile for yourself in less than 10 minutes.

We welcome any questions or feedback and look forward to serving your school community.
