BOT NEWS – Keeping you in the loop
We would like to keep you all in the loop around our discussions and decisions. We had another successful meeting on Tuesday.
The big news is that we finally have the go ahead from the ministry of Education to rebuild and renovate all the toilets. The Wharekai is also going to be rebuilt. This building work will take place in late February once the tender and consent process is complete.
Student achievement for Term 3 was discussed at length. We have set a target of 80% of our students to be at or above in reading, writing and maths. We have yet to reach this target. Reasons why and plans forward were discussed. The results will be in next week’s newsletter.
Purchases approved are 30 Ipads for the junior classes. Combination rugby and soccer goalposts have been purchased but have been delivered in a poor state so are being sent back to be fixed.
The BOT are looking forward to the introduction of Chromebooks in 2015. We are also looking forward to working with other local schools to provide future focused learning opportunities. There will be another community meeting about this in a few weeks’ time.
A copy of the minutes of our meeting is in the office foyer for you to read.
