Through Utopia's network of partners we were approached by the Principal at Waikowhai Intermediate School to provide them with a new website. The site had to provide an easy to use Content Management System (CMS) so staff can keep the content updated, and, deliver a fresh new look as an upgrade to the existing older looking site.

Utopia met with staff at the school to discuss the design and functionality that the site would deliver. We then proceeded in implementing the design including the following features:

  • Full CMS for maintaining the website content
  • Gallery of images
  • Header image animation which can be easily updated by staff
  • Contact forms for things like absentees
  • Use existing school branding

The final site is clean, simple and easy to navigate. It provides the community with an up-to-date resource for sharing school information - from enrolment to swimming sports results. Howard Perry, Principal of Waikowhai had this to say post go-live: "Thanks again, the process of working with you and your company to get to this stage has been excellent."
