Our then McDonalds Bracken Ridge was a little different to most in that we were both an Economic and a Social Enterprise dedicated to taking care of our Restaurant Team, our many wonderful Customers and our awesome and inspiring Community. We invested in Australian Newsletters simply to assist the many Schools in effectively communicating with their various School Communities. We had no commercial interest in our investments with Australian Newsletters. The Australian Newsletter Team were always highly professional and seamless in their execution. We simply did it for the right reason.
Advertising through the school newsletter has been a great way to promote our club to the school community. Most new members have seen our advertising in the newsletter, and it has encouraged them to come along and join up. From the administration perspective, it’s very easy to set up and the graphic designers are great to work with. The company has also been great at supporting advertisers through the difficult times during COVID-19 lockdowns, where we as a club were unable to operate. This meant that our 2020 investment in advertising was not wasted, and we really appreciate their support.
Ray White Rural Esk | Toogoolawah have been strong supporters of the Austnews School Newsletters. Our business is built on loyalty and trust and what a better way to reach a broad family market than the school newsletter. Austnews Advertising provides a professional look, cost effective and easy process to advertise. We are happy with our consistent presence in the school newsletter and will continue to support this form of advertising. Thank you for the last 8 years in business.
Fabulous support from commencing with Austnews. The expertise on the team has ensured layout, technical aspects, time taken to design the newsletter specific to our school's needs etc, has resulted in a professional contemporary style newsletter. Thank you to a brilliant team at Austnews - we look forward to our continued journey.
I have teacher's ongoing now who will use it for classroom newsletters - some newsletter some eflash - it's so exciting and our defence aides are over the moon that they can send to the kids under the Defence tag I created. OneSchool has no functionality for them to pull an email list. It applies for all of our extracurricular groups - Defence, drama club, instrumental music groups, library monitors - such an easy way for those non classroom staff to communicate to their families. And the data is updated here when parents update with us over the counter (so no chance they are using an old OneSchool email address because they pulled a list at the start of term!) we love it. There are also parents who are not to receive correspondence and sometimes new (or non-tech savvy teachers) don't check that box - using ePub avoids all that as I make sure the data is clean and only those who should be getting emails receive them
Cannonvale State School has been satisfied ePublisher users for 8 years and it has come to play a crucial role in the way we communicate with our families and wider community. We are a busy, rapidly growing school so a reliable, smooth running communication platform is paramount. This user-friendly program allows us to produce weekly newsletters with ease that are professional, fun and engaging to our school community. Additionally, ePublisher enables us to email our families quickly and easily via eFlash messages. This proved to be a lifesaver during the COVID-19 home schooling phase where it became necessary to message our parents regularly to notify them of critical information and ever-changing circumstances. It also gave us the capability to generate digital consent forms and online surveys to suit our unique needs. The support team is always readily available and eager to help with any question no matter how small. We cannot speak highly enough of ePublisher and highly recommend it for any school wishing to streamline their communication with a reliable, trustworthy and innovative platform.
We place a great deal of importance on clear, effective and timely communication to our parents. Sherwood State School use e-publisher as a means to communicate messages, reminders, newsletters & surveys. After undertaking the initial training, we found e-publisher to be user friendly and intuitive – making the important job of communicating with our families stress free. The system can be used for quick, immediate email messaging or for more in depth newsletters and surveys. Customer service is excellent and the team are always on hand to support and educate. E-publisher’s customer service is particularly appreciated during busy times, such as preparing for a new school year or during COVID-19. These are critical times for us when regular, important messages have needed to be sent . We have found E-publisher always open to feedback, demonstrating they are committed to continual improvement, whilst maintaining a palatable price point for schools.
We chose to advertise through Austnews to support our children's school. Our children have since moved on and with Austnews Advertising's assistance, we can continue to support our local school while reaching our local community.
ePublisher has created a platform that allows our school to communicate directly with the parents, staff, and local community. The advanced technology helps us to create unique effective content that is engaging with everyone who reads our newsletters. We can use videos, images, slideshows, digital forms, instant email messages, and more. The ability to generate electronic forms has allowed for quick, efficient and seamless responses to permission forms. We recommend the ePublisher platform and the Austnews services to any Queensland School who wants to improve how they connect with parents.
Birkdale State School has used Austnews as their newsletter and communication service provider to parents and the wider community for many years. Their platform is easy to use and enables the school community to receive information quickly and efficiently. The alert notices have been extremely useful, especially during the Coronavirus outbreak, for the school to communicate up to date information to our families and school community members. The capacity to share video has also been great during the pandemic to share activities at school with parents, who are unable to attend events. Thanks Austnews for providing a simple and effective product for our school community communication.
Kedron State School engaged with Austnews 5 years ago when we determined it was time to provide our community with a more sophisticated, easy to engage with, dynamic newsletter that captured the essence of what was happening in our school. In that time community feedback and ‘click data’ clearly shows access to the newsletter has increased exponentially. Parents often comment they feel confident they are receiving pertinent information in a easy to read format that conveniently works across multiple devices. As Principal, I believe effective communication with our community is essential to a positive partnership that improves children’s experiences at school. Austnews is certainly an integral part of our communication strategy and is extremely user friendly.
Currumbin Gymnastics & Cheer have been advertising with Australian Newsletters for over a decade. It is a professional company, every section of the company is a pleasure to work with. CGC has been on the local school newsletter both on paper editions and now digitally reaching out to thousands of families on the Gold Coast.
Jan Goetze of Raine & Horne Cleveland is a proud supporter of the local community and advertising in the local school’s newsletter helps Jan to stay in touch with local families in the Redlands. With over 3 years of advertising in newsletters, Jan is delighted to be represented by Austnews advertising, as it is easy and personable to use providing a consistent presence in the local area. Jan Goetze and Raine & Horne Cleveland will continue with the ongoing commitment to the local community with Austnews.
Our school have been with Austnews for over 10 years now and we have to say their ePublisher platform has totally revolutionised the way we communication with our school community. From the Austnews training to the customer service and the constant innovation and these ease of use, ePublisher has given us that vital instantly communication link with our families electronically. It helps celebrate and bring our school spirit to life in full colour – using photos, videos, iMovies and endless information.
Our staff have found using ePublisher for our school newsletter to be a more time efficient process and so much more engaging platform for our community to read. Moving to a new school recently who were still working with word and publisher version, I quickly noticed the difference in both time and engagement with the newsletter. We moved over to ePublisher and it was invaluable during the COVID lockdown periods this year, with the additional aspects the platform provides. We had overwhelming positive response from the community regarding the shift to ePublisher for our news sharing each week.
At Pimpama State School we have been using ePublisher for the last 8 years to communicate online with our families. We have found the website to be very user friendly and easy to navigate. The support staff are amazing and provide quick responses to any questions we may have. The layout is clear, organised and the end result looks professional.
