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.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs an update
This app is in need of an update. Notifications of new posts by schools would be great.
Calendar information doesn't have details
This app doesn't have a 'details' view for calendar items, which in my opinion, is the most useful part of the application. Events are spread across 'Events' and 'Calendar' which is also crummy.
