Dear Parents/Caregivers
Community Consultation Survey
The Board of Trustees is undertaking its annual community consultation. We want to receive feedback and ideas to inform our planning for 2014.
Today each family has been given a booklet that contains:
  • The current strategic plan.
  • The 2013 achievement targets for the school
  • The 2012 National Standards data for Papakowhai School and 2013 progress data.
We would like as many families as possible to complete the survey. You can do this by going to . If you are not able to complete this survey online please contact the Office and we will provide you with a paper copy.
Thank you for taking a small amount of your valuable time to help us plan for your child’s education.
Health Consultation
It is important that we consult with you about the health programmes we run at Papakowhai School. Do you know what is being taught? Are you happy with the content and the age it is delivered to?
We currently run a sexuality education programme in Year 7 and 8. Do you think this should be extended to Year 5 and 6? Have I got your attention yet?
We run a Keeping Ourselves Safe unit that includes preventing child abuse but we currently don’t run the Kia Kaha, prevention of bullying programme. Have we got that right?
The Life Ed programme speaks to our younger students about healthy eating and caring for our bodies. This extends to drug and alcohol education for our Year 7 and 8’s. Are you happy with this?
If these are issues that you would like to have input into, then please come to an evening I am hosting on August 21st. We will have coffee and dessert and look at the content of the programmes we offer, and some of the ones we don’t. Make sure you have your say. RSVP to by Friday 16th August. The evening will start sharp at 7:30pm in the staffroom and finish by 9:30pm.
Kind regards
Mark Smith
