SMART Governance – News from the BoT

This month we approved the purchase of an additional 24 iPads. These will be in classrooms next year. These iPads will take us closer to our goal of having sufficient technology to best enhance teaching and learning across the school.

We reviewed the results of the Maths Specialist Teaching (MST) programme that Sarah Kavanagh has been running this year. This programme is for students who are working below national standards. The results are fantastic – the majority of students involved have ‘caught up’ the equivalent of 2-4 years! This programme will continue next year.

We extended the position of our Māori representative, Mike Gibbs, on the board. Mike welcomes anyone who is interested in finding out more about the Whānau Group to email him
