The Activity Registrations Site Extra, enables your school to organise registration and payment for extra curricular activities. You can create an unlimited number activities and organise them into categories to give you flexibility as to how the registrations display on your site. For example, you could have a separate page where you list sport registrations and another section where you list art classes etc. All student and caregiver information is checked against your existing KAMAR data, so no extra work is required to connect with your community.

For each activity you can add a description, attach an image and set terms and conditions for the activity which much be agreed to before registration.

You can also limit which activities students have access to by year level. Year levels are verified by your school's KAMAR data.

When a student registers for an activity, a confirmation email OR SMS text message is sent to their caregiver, whereupon they are asked to click a link that gives permission for the for the student to register for the activity. Caregivers login with their KAMAR account to give their approval which they can do directly from their phone.

For caregivers that forget to respond to the initial approval request, additional reminder emails and text messages can be sent with the click of a button.

For each activity you can export a report listing the registrations and whether the student's caregiver has given their permission. 

Before you begin setting up your activities it's helpful to gather all of the pertinent information for each activity including the description and the terms and conditions. In the description be sure to note an contact email address of the person organising the activity in case someone has questions and also to state any activity fees.
