To begin this months meeting Mrs Meyer shared her science learning journey. Thanks Mrs Meyer for all your hard work, your passion is infectious and we look forward to the science curriculum growing within the school.
Next Shane presented some student data - our targeted groups. It was awesome to see the huge improvement by some of our students. Great work kids keep it up, go harder get higher! Remember parents and whanau your involvement in your child’s learning will make the difference.
The Board accepted an offer by the Unstoppables TPPS Te Ao Maori group. This is a group of students offered to teach the Board Maori tikanga and culture. We asked if they could first teach us about interactions and protocols when meeting people and holding meetings. We also asked if they would be interested in designing a school waiata. Watch this space!
Discussion was held about the recent conference we attended. The Board Members attended the annual NZ School Trustees Association Conference in Auckland over the school holidays. At this conference each Board member attended at least six workshops including topics like Student Achievement, Vulnerable Children, culturally responsive to Whanau, students and community, succession planning, property, the list goes on. We discussed the learning by each member, there was awesome feedback and a big TO DO list as a result.
We monitored finance, we received inwards correspondence and completed all the other essential meeting tasks then finished for the night.
Our next meeting is scheduled to be held on the 7th September 2015 at TPPS.
