ICT at Clyde Primary School
These days, technology is an integral part of everyday life. Clyde Primary is no exception to this life and we provide programs and opportunities for students to use ICT and digital technologies to help enhance and engage them in their learning.
Clyde Primary Sentral Parent Portal
The Sentral Parent Portal is the main platform that Clyde Primary School uses to communicate with parents.
Through the portal newsfeed messages, reminders and an event calendar inform parents of important dates and information. Parents are able to message the school office, class teaches and specialist teachers. They are also able to notify the school of absences, access school policies and documents, upload completed forms and book interview times. We recommend that you download the Sentral Parent Portal app in order to keep up to date with notifications as they happen.
Clyde Primary School has launched a new, more convenient way for parents and guardians to make various payments to the school. Qkr! (pronounced ‘quicker’) is a mobile payments app which enables consumers to order and pay for goods & services directly from their smart device. Qkr accepts all major credit and debit cards accepted by the school (Visa and MasterCard) and you can register more than one card within the app. The Qkr app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play. If using an iPad you can download the iPhone version of Qkr. You can download and register for Qkr now and start making payments right away.

The app delivers real efficiencies for school office staff as well as convenience for parents, so we are hoping that Qkr will become the preferred payment method for all payments by families to our school.
Qkr! can be accessed via the App or through the link on FlexiBuzz. It is also available on-line by going here qkr home page.
