The Logan Park High School Board of Trustees met on Thursday 31 August 2017.
We are delighted that Ms Kristan Mouat and Mr Peter Hills are our new Co-Principals. Our school motto is fitting as we farewell Ms Johnson and welcome our new team. “Kua mutu, kua timata. It is finished, but has again begun.”
We were pleased to receive a review of the Junior Diploma. It is clear that our teachers continue to think about what will enhance the learning for our students.
We discussed the recent Student Health and Safety Hui which was instigated by our current Student Trustee Rosa Miles-Seeley. It was a rewarding and hugely useful exercise and a good way for us as a Board to hear what students are saying.
We received a comprehensive summary from our esteemed former Principal Jane Johnson about our school’s experience of improving ako, the teaching and the learning, for our Maori students. This began with He Kakano from 2010 to 2014 and finished with Kia Eke Panuku from 2014 to 2016. We thank Ms Johnson for her enthusiastic leadership in this journey which is ongoing.
We have put our updated “Concerns and Complaints” procedure on the website. We hope that this clearly shows how you can raise any concern with the school and the process that is followed in addressing a concern.
We are aware that students have exams coming up and wish them and their supporting whanau well as they prepare for these.
This is the first of many summaries that will be posted on the Logan Park High School website after each meeting.
Our last meeting was on Thursday 27 July 2017.
Logan Park High School has joined with many other teaching and learning institutions in our area to begin to form a Community of Learning. This Community of Learning is fortunate to have teachers from Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary levels.
The Board was pleased to receive a the results of a recent survey on Staff Wellbeing. Surveys like this are useful to support and guide the decisions we make.
We are pleased to let you know that our school finances are healthy.
The Education Review Office has informed us they will be visiting the school in September 2017.
The Board wants to thank all of you who contributed to our request for suggestions about the appointment of our new principal. We value your responses.
Our next meeting is on Thursday 31 August 2017.
