Engage schools in Southern Africa
Kingswood College, Grahamstown
“With 950 pupils, Kingswood College adopted Engage in 2017 to enable their goals of fostering each pupil’s spiritual, moral, social, intellectual, cultural and physical development, to be met.
“Within 18 months of implementation, I have just two words with which to describe Engage,” said Allayne Guest, Head of Academic Administration,
“Effective and Efficient."

“At Knights we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual in our care and Engage has made it possible for us to do this in real practical ways every day.
"Our school is more connected and our parents receive feedback and information that is pertinent to their children. Our parents love seeing the DayBook notifications which allow them to engage meaningfully with their children on what has happened at school.
"I love that our school community is connected regardless of where we are geographically."

“The curve of our growth plans and forward thinking innovation could not be met with our existing software.
"We created a list of requirements and evaluated nine systems with three-hour long presentations from five companies, looking at usability, functionality, and their ability to grow with us.
"Engage stood out in every area. There was no doubt regarding the choice to be made."
Eswee Prinsloo, Deputy Head and Head of Operations

"Engage has an unparalleled depth of functionality like no other when compared to other providers.
"Having worked on many educational management systems, I must complement Engage on such an outstanding product. This is by far the most advanced educational management system I have ever seen in my career to date."

"We took a very intentional decision several years ago to embrace a 21st Century approach to learning by fully integrating our use of technology to improve learning, rather than just using devices in a standalone way. Our decision to install Engage has made an enormous difference and enabled us to deliver that integrated approach while also improving access to information and enhancing our environmental custodianship by moving towards a more paperless society. We track the measurables in Engage but also capture things like commendations, to help us understand personal development as well as academic achievement over time, exactly in line with the school’s values and objectives.
I have been absolutely delighted with the functionality of Engage, as well as the inherent message that our use of it gives to all our stakeholders, teachers, students, parents and beyond. It especially meets the needs of a younger generation of parents and students who have grown up in this era."
Sue Redelinghuys, Principal, St Cyprian's School, Cape Town
