Education websites for secondary colleges

We have launched a new website for Castlemaine Secondary College which appeals to our core values of working with local organisations and institutions to build better and stronger communities.

Castlemaine Secondary College services all students in the Mount Alexander Shire in Central Victoria. They approached us to build a dynamic website for their school that reflects the strength and diversity of the students living in our community. The design had to include the colours of the College’s yellow logo, royal blue and turquoise.

We had the challenge of presenting complex information in a user friendly format. Accessibility at a glance was our aim as we are all busy parents and need to find core information such as an absence reporting line and online calendars while multi-tasking during family rush hour. With easy to navigate menus and page layouts teachers, students and parents can find information quickly and easily.

Education websites need to provide multiple downloadable materials, enrolment information, learning program information, school calendar of events and payment gateways. School websites need to have student Moodle logins and parent/carer secure Xuno login. Newsletter and other avenues of school information dissemination needs to be incorporated into the function of a school website.

School websites have to meet the approval of the Department of Education and satisfy various stakeholders and interested parties within the school administration, teaching body and parent committees. All this takes incredible co-ordination, time and diplomacy of which we are experts at.

And of course, like always, the websites we build are responsive on all devices. Check out the Castlemaine Secondary College website here.
