BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE...

The Board met for their first meeting of the term last night and were privileged to have two groups of students from Room 7 present and discuss their learning. The construction group provided an overview of their fitness track project and the electronics group outlined their plans for creating a safer hall carpark environment for everyone. These student driven projects are enabling students to apply a huge range of learning to real life contexts allowing them to further develop skills such as teamwork, leadership and time management. The Board were very impressed with the students and were unanimous in their support for these projects.

In other business, the Board approved the term dates for 2016, which are shared with you on the right, and also approved four policies relating to school governance. These are available in the office for your information and will be available online soon.Like many of you, the Board is also looking forward to next term’s Ag day which has been moved to a Saturday. We see it as a great opportunity to involve the whole family in this fun community event.Finally with an anticipated ERO review next term, we are looking at our school systems and ensuring we are doing everything we can be provide a great environment for our children to learn in. Ngā mihi,

Nick L, Juana, Matt, Tracey, Jo, Reegan & Nick R
