We have been working on updating our policies and procedures during 2020. This is important and necessary to ensure they are fit for purpose and reflect any changes to the legislature, most recently and considered in this update are the changes to the Education and Training Act 2020. You can find the draft version of the Board Policies on our website and invite you to send your feedback to us by Friday, 19 February 2021. Please send your feedback to [email protected]. All feedback will be considered and a final version will be ratified by the Board of Trustees and updated to our website.
Thank you to Izzy for his amazing graffiti art completed over the last couple of days on the northern end of the Technology Block. Our Kotuku looks strong and proud within the blue background. You can find more of Izzy’s work on Instagram @fuegos.design and if you are interested in getting some art for yourself, he can be reached on [email protected]
This week we have finalised our 2021 Strategic Plan focusing on the big rocks that we will continue to work on, these are identified under the three main strategic goals. How we measure the success of these goals and actions are the metrics indicated at the bottom of the plan. The Tutor Group Programme has been launched. The works on the upgrade of the school hall are well underway and we are hopeful that the sequencing of the contractors to get the work completed will happen in a timely fashion. The Student’s Services Centre first developed design is close to being ready for the Board to have a look at. This is a major build and is a project that is fully funded by the Board of Trustees. The approximately $2 million upgrades to D Block is where the majority of our Ministry of Education 5-year property funds is being allocated, I can’t wait to see the result of both of these projects in the next few years.
