Academy of Our Lady of
Mercy, Lauralton Hall is a girls catholic high school. Approaching
their 100th year they were in need of a website that could
provide information, education and community. Students,
teachers, alumnae, prospective students, and parents all
needed up to the minute news, bulletins and contact information.
Calendars for sports and events, classroom pages, assignments,
research links, alumnae community, club and sport pages
and results, were some of the features needed.
Awayke developed the initial solution
that provided areas for each type of user to find the information
pertinent to them. By using a dynamic structure with a cms,
information can be updated on the site quickly and easily.
A browser based form allows non-technical school personnel
to post news articles and bulletins right to the home page,
with pages for their articles in detail inside. Then, with
School Fusion, helped to expand the site to include communities,
calendars and classrooms. All with integrated navigation
so users can move fluidly and quickly though the site to
the information they need.
