Newcastle Grammar School App

The NGS App is a quick and easy way to access your Schoolbox content from your smart phone. The App provides all the information on Schoolbox at your fingertips and also allows notifications to your device which can be completely customised to suit your preferences. For example, you can elect to get a notification when new School News is posted. The App is available in both Apple and Android versions.

School Interviews

School Interviews is an easy and efficient online event booking system for Parent / Student / Teacher interviews that allows parents to choose the teachers and times that they want, so students can’t prevent meetings they’d prefer not to happen. And parents with more than one student will never get conflicting times. Accessed via a School provided code, parents are able to create, change or cancel bookings online for designated interviews times with their child’s teachers. School Interviews Login

SAS Parent Portal

This portal allows parents to login to view and download information such as student Academic reports, Financial reports, your child’s attendance history and update family information such as postal addresses and phone numbers. The Parent portal is available through a link in Schoolbox called Parent Connect.
