Home' Independence : Independence Vol 34 No 1 May 2009 Contents Denbigh International specialises in the
development of customised school
administration software systems for
schools, colleges and other enterprises
throughout Australasia and it has now
added the option of integrated two-way
SMS functionality to its flagship school
management software system, Denbigh
This allows student absence and other
SMS messages to be sent direct from
Denbigh Administration in order to
increase student attendance by
reducing unexplained absences and
reduce administration workload.
The new FileMaker Pro based
Denbigh Administration SMS
Module can now automatically
generate and transmit SMS messages
to parents of absent students, to
groups of students, to arbitrary parents
or to staff, regarding student absences,
events, alerts etc, recording details directly
into the database.
Response SMS messages are automatically
matched to outgoing ones (where caller
ID allows), and after review by staff, the
reply is posted direct into the student’s
A low cost dedicated two-way SMS
interface server with SIM card is used
for the SMS transmission and receipt
and Denbigh International customises
Denbigh Administration to enable
origination of SMSs from wherever in
the system suits each individual school’s
The versatility of FileMaker Pro has
enabled Denbigh International to offer
this functionality at a fraction of the cost
of alternative systems.
Denbigh International is a FileMaker
Business Alliance Platinum Level Member.

Pencil-in some fun to this year’s school
calendar by organising a Jeans for Genes
activity to raise money for the Children’s
Medical Research Institute (CMRI).
This year Jeans for Genes Day is on
Friday 7 August. For the past 16 years
schools have been an invaluable part of
the day’s successful fundraising. The
CMRI conducts research into
understanding childhood diseases,
including conditions such as birth defects,
cancer and epilepsy. It is complex and
costly work. But the CMRI’s discoveries
will pave the way for treatments,
preventions and perhaps even cures to
relieve suffering and give all children
a healthier life.
There are so many things schools can do
to ensure their wonderful work continues.
In 2008, schools across Australia raised
approximately $600,000. This money
goes into important research programs.
This year, we hope schools can continue
to support Jeans for Genes and maybe
even build on previous results.
Why not hold a jeans day at school where
gold coin donations are collected or sell
funky Jeans for Genes merchandise? Or
get a team of students and teachers
together and sell at a train station or
shopping centre. You could also get the
school band and other wannabe
musicians/dancers together for a Jamm
for Genes event. The possibilities are
endless but one thing is certain – all
activities are guaranteed to bring
everybody together for a great cause.
To find out how your school can get
involved go to www.jeansforgenes.org.au
or contact us on 1800 GENIES (436 437)
or if you wish to register a team and sell
at train stations or shopping centres
contact volunteer manager, Lynda Dave
at firstname.lastname@example.org .
