Using Bulk SMS for School Resumption Date Reminders- How Effective?

  23 March 2016

At this time, most schools in Nigeria, both government owned and private ones have concluded their terminal examinations and going on end of the term holiday. A long duration of learning has again ended, time for the students to get some fun and rest and the teachers to replenish lost fuel.



During the duration when the school was in full operation, school proprietors no doubt used bulk SMS effectively in carrying out different functions within the school and rightly so. The uses of bulk SMS though do not stop here. There is still an important objective it can be used to accomplish, resumption date reminders.



On this platform, we have considered at length the importance of an open and meaningful constant communication between the school authority and the parents of the students. This is because the more you carry the parents along in the management of your school, the better for all the parties involved.


It is a norm among many students also to mislead their parents about school matters, the school resumption date inclusive. This they do in order to buy more time for themselves to enjoy a much longer holiday. Taking this official date straight into the ears of the parents will really help.


Sending well spaced out reminders to the parents during the time the holidays elapse can also help in getting fees and dues paid as soon as the new term begins. As the resumption date reminders come in, the parents also start sourcing for funds to pay. This is much better than letting the date dawn on them instantly.



Simply go to your registered bulk SMS account on the day of vacation and send an update on resumption date to all the parents. It doesn’t stop there; send timely reminders spread out throughout the duration of the break. This helps in realizing your objectives.
