John Paul College

The Challenge

John Paul College is one of the largest and most successful schools in the Rotorua area. For a long time however, they had a website which needed a lot of improvement, and was not time or cost effective to maintain and update. They also found it difficult to keep the content fresh and relevant for parents, teachers and students. This is why they came to us with the idea of a new website. As well as solving these problems, JPC also wanted to be able to improve the functionality of the website with a shopping cart so they could sell school uniforms online, and a virtual school tour. There would also be a particular focus on highlighting their school and the Rotorua region as a great destination for international students looking to study abroad.

Our Approach

We worked with the team at John Paul College to develop a completely new website, that was much more user friendly and easier to update. New features included an eCommerce shop that allows uniforms to be purchased from home, the ability to pay school fees online, integration with the KAMAR portal, and a virtual tour of the school. The website is also more able to represent JPC globally as it is now more accessible to international students wanting to learn about the school in their own language.

The Results

Dubzz built John Paul College a fresh and vibrant website that reflected the success and strong reputation of the college. Training was provided to JPC staff who are now competent and confident to update the website and the uniform shop.

We created a uniform shop section with e-commerce making it much easier for students and their families to purchase school uniform online.

There was a large focus on the International section of the website, the content is translated into 12 languages and we have seen a 145% increase in visitors during 2018 compared to 2017.

“We worked with Rachel and Byron to review and revamp the John Paul College website earlier this year. They were invaluable in the advice they gave us as to what makes a good website. We had some ideas and they worked with these and created our current website. We are very pleased with the work they did for our main website and especially for the International Student section. This was quite complicated and Rachel and Byron professionally managed the development of this section. They are always willing to answer any questions we have with the ongoing updates of our website. They are efficient and conscientious with speedy replies to any queries. The training they provided for JPC staff was exceptional. We are now able to update the website efficiently. I would highly recommend Dubzz as developers of websites who provide professional support in a timely manner.”
