Queensland school communities can interact with their favourite state schools using the QSchools smartphone app.

The QSchools app is a convenient way to receive up-to-the-minute information from and about schools.

While all schools are searchable using the app, the full app features are designed to integrate with the department’s preferred school website platform, to allow users to see when news, events and newsletters are posted to their selected school website. Users can also see other useful information provided by the school, such as tuckshop menus, uniform shop information, class times and the school’s and the department’s social media feeds.

The school community can also receive emergency announcements such as natural disasters and school closures through the app.

The QSchools app is particularly useful to parents who have students in different schools, as the app manages updates from multiple schools.

Great idea but..... Push notifications do not work and it sucks the life out of my battery. Can't change settings so that it doesn't check for new messages so offen. Installed on samsung s3 and tab 3, and LG G3.

melissa taylor

Samsung galaxy S4 Excellent app. I like the fact it can show also which schools are closed when we have a disaster or any vital info for your school

Tamara Taaffe

Great app I like the idea of having all my kids schools info altogether

Philip Uren

Lousey!! 1 child graduated primary school & moved on to high school. I can't delete the old school on my list. Might have to uninstall, then reinstall and then re-select schools my other kids go to. Maybe I won't bother reinstalling. Blah.

Katherine Mackenzie

Push notifications not working Good app but the push notifications don't work so I have to open the app to see if there's any notifications

Leanne Innes

Great app Push notifications work sometimes. All the time would be better ?

Matthew Beattie

Q Schools Does what is says. No crashes seems good.

Kaylene Rogers

Great the way upcoming events go straight into my calendar

Samantha Hayden

Only showing last years book lists

Jodie Vandermaal

Excellent. Informative and useful.

Leah Bretherton

Excellent Excellent. Keeps me updated on what's happening in my local schools. Especially useful during the recent cyclone with information about school closures.

Kellie Beckenham

Kellie B I love that i can catch up on school activities even when i am away for work. We can share with other family members easily but at the moment can not get an icon on my home screen i have to keep going to play store to open the app.

Dean Thomo

Good. App Great now just need the school to stop sending news letters home

Kristy Myers

Love this app ,great to keep an eye on what's going on :)

Mick Lawrance

Great way to keep up to date about what is happening in schools.

Gina Alfa

A very good and helpful app!

Rebecca Cameron

Newsletter won't download When I first downloaded this app newsletter were great, now it won't download the newsletters at all. Using Samsung Galaxy s4 mini

Mel Waldeck

Newsletters don't work anymore I click on a newsletter to read and it just returns me to the list of newsletters screen

Baden Appleyard

Doesn't work Events and newsletters do not download to Galaxy devices. Please fix. Then it would be a worthwhile app.

Renee Cavallaro

SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 Doesn't download the newsletter it tries to download but then goes back to the newsletter menu. VERY DISSAPPOINTED as this was the main reason I downloaded the APP so I could always get the newsletter info. PLEASE FIX THIS PART OF THE APP SO PHONES ARE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE NEWSLETTER INFO. ????

Wanda Austin

Push notifications promised but not delivered!

Sarah Sichter

The was no information on the schools I required

Hayley Scully

newsletters wont open. so annoying

Nizar Kabadaja

No notifications come through

Laurel Nash

fantastic i loved it

Simon Wallace

Perfect way to keep up to date with the school

Garry Paterson

Great App Makes access to important dates that we might miss out on, for all of us staff who work over 2 school, easy. Love the ability to automatically sync with calendar!

Marc.Mistee Hillyard

Best app ever! This app is the best app ever! Easy to use. The events can br linked to my calendar. Now I don't have tosearch high and low for yhe newsletter each week as my son forgets to give it to me. It keeps us informed. Thank-you to who invented this app. Its nice to find an app that is useful and makes my life more organised.

Ivon Harris

Better for the environment With so much wasteage in a world, where modern technology is so up to date I can now keep in touch with my childs activites and correspondance. This is a very easy to use application I would encourage parents to install this as it obviously saves a tree and is aethetically better on the eyes then more clutter for the mailbox.

Stacey Edwards

Great idea, an app for our school and it has current info. Finally! :)

Mark Hudson

The Q School's app is a godsend. Very functional and easy to navigate. Just a few more documents to really give value.

Shan C

Awsome Everyone with kids should have this

Gai Rodwell

At last, very easy too use, love the option to add events to my calendar, great app

Ashley Proud

All good Pretty easy to use

Leslie goodman

Great app for Qld schools

Whayne Harnath

Excellent Extremely good setup highly recommend.

Sili Tinoai

Best school app ever ? very helpful in deed. Highly recommended.

Yuki Fujimaki-Garrett

Need much improvement The departmrnt calendar should be properly created instead of showing the desktop version of the webpage with pdf. Much improvement required for the real communication tool.

Jennifer Creed

Helpful It's convenient for accessing school information but would be better if push notifications worked.

Kim McLean

A great app for busy parents to be able to access the information when needed and without the worry of finding a newsletter. I love it

Natalie James

Handy but no privacy Im in 2 minds to this, its handy but anyone (yes anyone and everyone) can look up a school and find out exactly what is going on where and when at that school. Im worried this could open a door to having our kids be unsafe. May help to have a your school login. Parade and all sorts of minor events are on there to allow predators easy access to info to be able to easily persuade trust in an unsuspecting child no matter how well they are educated on safety

Laura Wilson

Wamuran school It great little school and kids love they get better education. No matter what happens there it sort out quickly and no drama and got good principal

Katy McCallum

This is a very handy app indeed. I'd recommend it to any parent using a state school in QLD. My only problem with it, is that it relies upon the school directly uploading their information into it. For example, we've recieved a few one off emails that I didn't read until checking my emails a few days after they were sent. These emails were never loaded into the app, had they of been, I would of read them straight away. Perhaps it depends on the individual schools level of importance they place on using this tool as a form of communication?

Danelle Emerson

Fantastic way to keep in touch with what is happening at school! Love having the ability to read the newsletters when it is convenient for me and I also never miss anything because I don't have to rely on my children to bring it home! Great app absolutely love it

Hadrian Oliver

Almost great... Gives access to documents from the school, but there's no push notifications for them so you miss them if you don't remember to check regularly.

Nathaniel Mitchell

No connectivity The app fails to recognise a stable wifi connection. Seriously flawed. Is this a beta test of some kind?

Cairns Cake Lady

It has potential, far to go. Has potential but still has far to go. All schools should be made to use it properly to make it effective. A password to access more content would be ideal, including newsletters that shouldn't be public on websites and facebook. Seems like State Ed have forgotten about privacy rights of children.

Tim Overton

Push notifications don't work Otherwise great idea

Katrina Reed

Yes lv it so easy to never forget anything ?

Tracy Ziebarth

Handy app for checking Term Start & Finish Dates.

Kerri O'Connor

Great for busy mums Love that I can check on here for important information like pupil free days months in advance. Don't like that you have to rely on school when not all schools know about it. Recommend for grand parents with kids spread across the state so you can be in the know.

Melody Lindsay

Handy Got no complaints. Makes my life much easier. My kids go to different schools having all the information I need in the one place, makes it so much easier then going through all my emails. Life saver with the booklist!!

Jasenko Blazevic

Simple but working Also love the integration with the calendar.

donna hadfield

Great App All school information in one convenient place

Jade Falconer

Very good.. works fine...

Sugar Glider

Very good informative app

MrJoshw84

No push notifications I am not receiving push notifications on my galaxy s6. It has not worked since day 1.

Lauren Stanbury

Push notifications Push notifications do not work we have had several urgent alert at my childrens school and unless i physically go into the app and check every few minutes we dont no whats going on several people i no have this issue

Prananda Navitas

Handy It is handy. However, I must agree with an earlier comment on privacy: everyone can find out what's going on in each and every school.

Troy Coley

Don't like how even though you have clicked (on) the notifications you still have to open the app & check for yourself as it doesn't notify you!! Not happy with this app!

Angelica Lezar

Advanced app. Excellent to keep up to date and minimise paper wastage.

Kia Cordwell

Great App. Love it Love this app. It lets you sync up coming events to my phone.. so I dont miss anything my children have to do at school.. As im always on the go and dont really stop. Once I download my preferred schools I synced the whole school year to my calendar on my phone.

Martin Steven

Useful but flawed Would like to see push notifications working and automatically adding events to my calendar rather than having to do each one manually...

Jolene Lowe

Handy App I quite liked the concept of this app, however it would be fantastic if the schools actually kept the information up to date in the events and newsletter sections.

Pip licious

Vanessa The app is ok but, notification of events as they're coming up & updated info from school would be great

desiree Hinton

Handy App A handy app to keep up to date with what happens at school. I am very happy using this app.

Leanne Innes

Great app Push notifications work sometimes. All the time would be better ?

Katrina Reed

Yes lv it so easy to never forget anything ?
