Overview


Redhill Connect, our formal general messaging portal

 

Communication with our stakeholders occurs at two levels:

Personal information,

student/parent specific information such as report cards, assessments, personal information and invoice information.  This is held in our administration system which runs on the ADAM platform, and

General information,

activities and schedules, news, interest surveys and day to day information regarding Campus life at Redhill.

Every effort is made to cater for our community's preferred method\s of receiving general messaging and it is for this reason we make use of four channels to disseminate information across the Redhillian Community. It is important to note that you do not have to receive information on all four platforms. You can choose your preferred method\s of receiving information by completing this form. You may also update your preferred method\s by re-completing the form at any time.

 

The four channels we use are:

Redhill Connect Portal,

which resides on the school's website; you are on the Portal now.

The portal is the primary repository for all general communiques. Information pushed to our stakeholders can be found here and consumed at your convenience or, if necessary, referred to later. Resources such as calendars and forms are also available on the portal. See the Resources menu item above, to see what is available.

Redhill Connect App,

which runs on the d6 platform and can reside on a device\s of your choice.

The Redhill Connect App is a closed application and therefore requires authentication. This entails us creating a profile for you, you can apply for your profile by completing our Formal General Messaging Preferences Form found here. This application can be used by multiple stakeholders per family, using unique profiles. A typical example would be to create a profile for an Au-Pair or Caregiver in addition to a profile for yourself as a parent.

This is a push channel, information is delivered to a device of your choice. Its functionality is to Alert the recipient of important and/or urgent messages, through the delivery of a Pop-up message. This message is typically short, 125 characters, by nature.

It also provides silently published messages which contain a link to push you to information on the Redhill Connect Portal.

A quick glance calendar which is synchronised to the calendars under resources on the Redhill Connect Portal is also available.

Redhill Connect bulk e-mailing facility which runs on the CommuniGate platform,

the CommuniGate system is mandatory platform for at least one email address per family and optionally one register additional email addresses on the system. It is used to keep all stakeholders, parents, teachers, staff and students at Redhill School informed of general notifications published on the Redhill Connect Portal. You’ll receive an email that will contain an introductory paragraph together with the relevant link to transport you to the Portal where you can consume the content published.

Social Media,

our social media channels are there to keep our stakeholders informed and allow them to be part of their children’s day-to-day school life.  The content is moderated, but we do encourage all our stakeholders to send ‘news’ to redhillconnect@redhill.co.za.  We share posts from happenings across all the schools and create specific groups which focus on one activity.  To understand which social media platforms are used read more here.
