St. Mary’s Catholic Learning Centre is using its Continuing Education Twitter feed to promote and share its Camp BLAST summer learning activities.
To build the school’s following on the popular social platform, parents of SLP students are provided with Twitter account postcards and invited to follow the program’s events online.
All Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board (BHNCDSB) schools now have twitter accounts to keep parents, students and the Catholic community informed and connected with what’s happening. Schools and the Board use Twitter to send out important news, information, and success stories.
St. Mary’s has found Twitter to be an effective tool for keeping a constant (and up to date) flow of information to parents regarding activities and events that are taking place within both Camp BLAST and Continuing Education.
Why use only Twitter, and not some additional forms of social media? Rather than “jumping on multiple platforms,” St. Mary’s opted to use one social media platform, and use it well, to ensure that the account could be appropriately monitored. In addition, Twitter’s ‘list’ feature enables the school to monitor for potential issues.
The St. Mary’s CLC twitter feed is full of wonderful pictures highlighting student engagement, the gamification of learning, and all the fun activities its SLP team has planned!
