I have been involved with the school’s website development since it’s first version launched on 29th March 2001. Then I was given the honour of redesigning the whole website in 2007, working along with the then new principal. It was a hand coded HTML/CSS website which served the school well over the years.In keeping with time and after many years, the site needed a major change to be responsive and dynamic, as well as a ‘makeover’. I opted for the trendy ‘stretched’ layout.
The dynamic design enables Events List, the calendar and Facebook page postings to be fed onto the website automatically as the school staff enters the information to their school calendar or Facebook. Newsletters and notices are also dynamically fed onto the front page as well as the archive page.
I took all the photos on this website except historical ones and those on blog postings. The children were wonderful and a joy to photograph.
Getting a good panoramic view for the bottom of the pages, took many attempts; but they are worth it.
July-2017 : The school decided to change to a different system, as did many other schools around NZ, under a company specialising on school websites.
