"Just wanted you to know how great School-links is. We had a really big earthquake before. I put a message out straight away to say everyone was safe and I am inundated with replies from parents to say how they so much appreciated it."
Principal's Secretary at Halswell School
"Within 10 minutes of the tornado passing through our area we were able to reassure parents. Many parents told us that as they were hearing and seeing reports of the devastation and damage and phone lines were jammed, a simple reassuring email and text to let them know all our children were safe was invaluable."
Principal at Albany Primary School
