A collation of the  ‘Themes from Creating Our

Future Now’.


The first stage of consultation is completed and we have had a tremendous level of response from parents, students and staff. To date we have,72 individual responses on the survey, with the community board sessions and parent meetings garnering a further 60-70 responses. Combine this with the staff Input (35 responses) and student input (200 separate voices) and we have a very broad base upon which to construct our vision and strategic direction.

All of the documentation generated (lots and lots) through this process was been with our consultant (Chris Rowan) and she has now produced a document that collates all of your ideas and input into several pages of keys themes and common ideas for us to consider.

We are now sharing with you and we are seeking further input and feedback.

We will leave this opportunity for feedback open for the first few weeks of term 3.

We will also place the themes up on notice boards at school at the start of term 3.
