It was enlightening to see the positives out of the trip, and the proposal of implementing some of the ideas seen or experienced within these schools into Te Puke Primary School. I felt very excited to see the enthusiasm from all the staff when presenting their findings to the BOT, and the future changes that will be gradually seen throughout the school and in our community.
Some things we are looking at this term are:
- Schoolwide exercise, prior to start of school. This will be taken by our wonderful BOT representative George Pepperell. This is to enable students to feel energized, happy, and ready for an exciting day of learning.
- Music playing throughout the school prior to school starting.
- Discovery Time
- Plans for a school chicken coop
Thank you to the teaching staff who went to Melbourne for their presentation and feedback. I am excited as both a parent and BOT representative, to be part of the positive future of our school and the wider Te Puke Community.
