Our Story

Red Apple Education and Skwirk were founded in October 2005 by company Chairman Rod Salmon.

The original concept was to create a safe online destination and learning environment for students to use as a resource tool for homework and assignments. However, after positive feedback from schools and teachers, Skwirk was taken into the classroom as a learning tool and we have continued to adapt and develop new ways of enhancing learning.

The Skwirk team, now lead by CEO Kiara Salmon, bring together a diversity of experience in education, teaching and learning technologies to make Skwirk one of the leading education portals. We are constantly evolving the tools and content based on valuable feedback from our customers.

Skwirk now hosts over 18,000 resources, is used by over 21,000 teachers and 320,000 students, and is used in over 1400 schools! Skwirk’s resources are also used all around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, HongKong, India, USA and UK.
