Reach History

The Reach story began one Thursday afternoon in October 2012 on a rugby field at Guildford Grammar School in Perth, Western Australia. Steve Montgomery went to assist Michael Holland to coach the Guildford Grammar 1st XV rugby team. Michael was the Head of Boarding for Guildford Grammar at the time.

Michael’s phone kept buzzing every few minutes with boarders trying to organize or confirm their upcoming weekend leave. It was clear that Michael, and likely many other Heads of Boarding across Australia, could benefit from a system that could change the way that schools could fulfill their Duty of Care.

Meanwhile, in Canada, Brian Murray was a Dean of Students and was in search of a system that would help bring efficiency to a very busy boarding program, from taking attendance at meals to processing thousands of requests for leave. Discovering that there were few options for Student Life Management Systems in the eco-system, Brian connected with Touchline Connect’s team and the work that they had started at Guildford Grammar continued as an international collaboration.

The result is what you see today – a suite of comprehensive, multi-featured, and advanced tools, which automate school and residential activities, improve communication, and provide measurable gains for efficiency and risk mitigation.
