Hero – Parent Communication

HERO is our electronic school management system that we use as our main source of communication and reporting to our school community.
 
HERO has an online student portfolio and reporting tool, which gives parents easy access to their child’s learning, via an individual account.  The account is specific to you and your child/ren and is connected to the email address that is on file at school. Parents can either share access to an account, or have one each, depending on their preference, as long as the email address you are using is in our system. One account will provide you with access to the learning information for all your children who are enrolled at Parakai School.
 
We believe that a strong home-school partnership is vital in supporting our students to achieve their very best. HERO is designed to strengthen this partnership by providing students and parents with more regular, relevant and up to date learning information, via an easy-access, secure, online platform.
