Ferdinand Postma High School

Web development of a robust, elegant and media rich website for Ferdinand Postma High School. Development included a birthday SMS system, mass email system, content management and SEO.

Ferdinand Postma High School is a cultural rich, diverse dual medium school situated in Ballie Park, Potchefstroom. It is one of only a few schools that can claim a 100% matric pass rate for the past 13 years.

Photo and video gallery
A flash photo gallery was deployed to prevent infringement of the photos, the gallery sorts the photos out by year and then by event to make it easy for a user to find the photos he / she might be interested in. The video gallery has embedded YouTube videos of various school events.

Content Management
Like all websites that are created by us, they come standard with a content management system either Joomla or WordPress that enables staff to quickly and efficiently create and manage content on the website with little technical "know how".

Birthday SMS System
