As we approach the end of term 3, our senior students should have a clear path as to what they have to do to succeed in the NCEA programme. There are some very positive distractions from this in the form of tournament week and the major Production, Grease, but nobody should be using these as an excuse for taking your eyes off the main goal which is academic success. Naturally, this focus on achievement also applies to the junior school, just in a different way.
From a Board perspective, we are also focussed on our goals for the school as outlined in our strategic plan. Foremost in this is obviously student achievement but we do also need to focus on managing our resources to support the learning and teaching that occurs.
To this end, we are starting the budget process for 2015 already, as well as making some progress on the master planning process. This ongoing planning and monitoring process does drive change and it is clear that these changes will continue but they are all made with the interests of our students at heart.
