Top Tip #1 - Term Dates


Did you know that the yellow button on the School App (bottom row) has all the term dates for the whole year?! Check all the dates for holidays, Teacher Only Days and even a helpful reminder of NZ Public Holidays!









Top Tip #2 - Save school events to your phone!


If you click on the purple calendar button (top row), it takes you to the Island Bay School Community Google Calendar.

  • All school events are listed here with relevant info (location, cost, what to bring etc).

  • Tap on any event and in the top right corner is a save icon.

  • Click on this to save directly to your phone calendar!




  • Note: once you have saved events to your phone, they don't update automatically, however we always note date changes in newsletters! The alternative option is to add the calendar below, which does update. You can always delete irrelevant events.


Top Tip #3 - Add the whole Island Bay School Community Google Calendar to your phone


Copy the link below and add to the My Calendar section of your gmail account or your personal email account. If you have trouble, contact Melheaphy@islandbay.school.nz.
