Gippsland schools are very individual in their approach to education and the range of programs and services they offer their own school community. Every School has its own unique identity. Ensure that visitors to your school website experience the joy of discovering yours.
All websites currently being created by Web Feats for Schools now use responsive design, enabling pages to dynamically adjust their width and images to fit any viewport. Responsive websites are recomended by Google for their usability. Google is now rating responsive websites that are searched for on a mobile device higher in search results than those of fixed width websites that are deemed to be not mobile friendly.

In the portfolio above Baringa School is the first to be designed using responsive website design. Although all Web Feats for Schools websites currently scale to fit the mobile device they are viewed on, to navigate within the pages on a smart phone it becomes necessary to pinch and zoom. Users can find this frustrating. In a fixed width design, when page scales, everything scales. In a responsive website, it is the width that adjusts to the viewport, the text does not scale, thus making it easier for users to read content and select links.
If your school has set up a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media account that you would like parents to check on a regular basis, prominent links and even feeds from them can be embedded within your website. See an example of how one school has organised theirs on Grey Street Primary School's Communicate Page.
The core business of education does not change for schools but your programs, policies, handbooks, transition dates, price lists, year level forms and school newsletters etc do.
Most small and rural schools do not need to buy a website that comes with a complete Content Management System (CMS) that will tie you to expensive ongoing costs for hosting for as long for as long as your website is online. Small schools cannot afford to spend their precious education funds in this way. With a Web Feats for Schools website you pay one package price. That's it. You will be able to update your own documents and photos yourself when the website is completed with no ongoing fees or hosting costs. Find out more about maintaining your school website here.
