Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou.
Welcome to 2016 everyone. We're on our way!
As you will have seen, there are some property changes happening at school. The new colour scheme is looking very fresh and sophisticated and the building work is well underway.
Last night, the Board of Trustees had our first meeting of the year; and what a productive meeting it was! Off the back of our strategic planning day at the end of 2015, we were able to finalise our School Charter goals for the year, to ratify the budget, and to sign off our achievement reporting to the Ministry of Education. These were just three key items from a very full agenda.
The year 2016 is shaping up to be a big year. Not only are there the Boards of Trustees elections being held nationwide in May, but later in the year Stanhope will receive a much anticipated visit from the Education Review Office (ERO).
Bring it on!
Note that we will provide further information about the upcoming elections, and also remember that you are most welcome to come and meet the Trustees before our board meetings or sit through some of a board meeting.
