What do we need most in 2020? What a question to start the year off with as we discuss the direction of the new school year. As a staff we spend the first two days of the school year in Professional Development meetings and this is a great way to start the year on the same page.
An exciting part of today, is that this year we will be focusing on the Pt England/Manaiakalani Way of implementing the amazing parts of the information that we acquired over the past few years. We will be focusing on Maths PD during the first semester and Reading during the second.
Our school theme for this year is "Never Lose Hope".which comes from one of our school values. We will be focusing on hope as: Dreams, Vision, Imagination, Goal Setting, A Vision for Tomorrow, A Sense of Future Possibility
As always our first part of the day was a great reminder of why we do what we do. Excited to see what the rest of the day looks like as we unpack our curriculum a little more and plan for a great Term 1!
