White Sands Primary School will be adopting a smartphone communication app called SNAC (School Notification Acknowledgement Console)
for all parents with effect on 31 March 2015.
This is to replace our existing SMS and paper notification system.
You will be able to download the app from the links below.
With SNAC, parents will receive PDF attachments, multilingual message notifications and event notifications such as e-consent form from the school. This app will allow the school to receive your feedback response in real-time, tracks notification read/unread status and takes proactive measure to contact you on
emergency matters if should the notification does not reaches you within the stipulated time.
However, we understand that a small minority may not own a smartphone, subscribe to a data plan or have Internet access at home. Thus, the school will still continue to send updates to you via mobile SMS.
The school strongly encourages and looks forward to your support on implementing this system, so that to allow the school to foster a closer communication bridge with you and as well as an overall improvement on effective communication and operation efficiency to serve you.

For Android Users
Older Android operating system would be no longer be
supported on mobile apps that are built on latest development kit (Android
Studio v3.x) provided by Google. Users who are still on the older Android
Operating System/device would be experiencing difficulties due to their
Operating System version is 4.4.x and below (which are more than 3 years old).
SNAC™ supports both parents to receive notification. Should
one of the spouse is unable to use SNAC™ we would recommend the other spouse to
install. Parents can also seek other alternatives on their iPad/Android Tablet
to install SNAC™.
