Stay up to date with BCE Connect

St Sebastian’s is excited to launch the new BCE Connect mobile app for our parent community. BCE Connect makes it easy for you to keep up with school events and information. This will replace the SkoolBag App in 2017. However, if you wish you are able to use BCE Connect App immediately.
Access is restricted to parents of students at our school and a logon is required. To be able to
logon to the App you must have previously logged into the Parent Portal to activate your account. The login details are the same as per the Parent Portal.
The latest version of BCE Connect allows us to send announcements as a push notice to anyone who has installed the app and selected St Sebastian’s and saved as a Favourite, for example a bus running late from an excursion. Make sure you have notifications enabled on your device for the app when you install it.
The push notification feature may be used to send an emergency announcement or to highlight an important message. The notification presents on a mobile device similar to a SMS text message. You do not have to open the app to see the notification.
Other features include newsletters, school forms and the ability to notify of student absences at a touch of a button.
The best experience is if you log into the APP , which is done with the same username and password as the Parent Portal , the App will enable you to stay logged in for up to a year.
Use the feedback tool in the app if you want to send a suggestion or let us know what you’d like in the app.
BCE Connect, is now available to download from Google play store or Apple App Store - iPhone link and iPad link.
If you have any questions, please see Jenny in the Office.
