De La Salle College
wanted a site that allowed them to keep their content fresh and
engaging. With a wealth of activity happening at the school they
needed an easy way to showcase their stories.
The school, having been around for nearly 60 years, has an
extensive photo archive. There were many requests coming from past
pupils to see old year books and photo's. They wanted a solution
that was customised for their needs and easy to use going
I developed a custom solution using Umbraco
CMS which allows the school to manage their news stories, photo
galleries, calendar events and much more.
They are now able to take enrolment applications online and
manage them in a customised backend from receipt of application, to
the review process, to the final acceptance. Having this
information in an easily-accessible, searchable and accurate store
enables the College to move away from a traditional paper-based
system thereby providing instant savings and reduction in
administration duties for College staff.
An integrated messaging system was also developed for queries
received through the site. This allows school admin staff to have a
better view of contacts received through the site and ensure that
all questions are answered to satisfaction.
