MEET THE TEAM
The idea struck post the Seddon earthquake 2013. During an event like an earthquake, parents are concerned about their children's safety and expect quick updates from the school or the teacher. In our research, we learned that parental anxiety is common in almost all the communities and that teachers struggle with work overload and teaching commitments.
Parents and teachers find it challenging to engage in improving the child's performance. We realised that there is a need for a fast, easy, and reliable communication solution for parents and teachers.
