We are pleased to let you know that we now have a new school App that you can download for free from either the Apple or Google Play app stores.

You can download the app by searching for “Eldon Primary” and download the app that displays our school logo.

Please make sure that you complete the ‘Register Form’ the first time you download the app.

The app provides instant access to term dates, events, newsletters, booking forms, links to the school website, absence form and many more features.

We will also be using the app to send out ‘push notifications’. These are messages that are sent directly to all those parents that have downloaded the app. As push notifications are free for us to send, this may replace our text messaging service at some point.
