St Joseph’s Primary School Wingham, Gloucester and Taree fall under the Manning Region of the Catholic Schools Office (CSO) Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. Schools were provided a budget to refresh their websites. In a collective decision four schools from the region came on board to complete a redesign and relaunch.
Toot Toot Design was to produce a refreshed online presence for each school. Combining new school branded elements, focusing on function and flow. With the objectives of generating fresh interest in the schools. Attracting new, and engaging existing students and parents. Supplying current, dynamic and relevant content and communicating essential school information.
It had to be a memorable online presence with up-to-date details. Stylish and functional, integrating the school crest and colours to establish a stronger ongoing identity. Busy interactive hubs aligned with CSO and Department of Education. User friendly and easy navigation to welcome all visitors. Critical requirements were areas for school news, downloadable documents, calendar and upcoming events plus a prominent real-time (emergency) announcements tool.
Most importantly the sites had to appeal to primary school children! Making them proud of their school and community.
Toot Toot Design collaborated with Web Developer, </done> to execute the building of the sites and custom CMSs.
Three of the fours sites have been launched. The forth is due to go live in the coming months.
