On Thursday 2nd February, the parent working party met with Miss L Cox and Mrs Hawker to discuss current issues within the school. We started off with a brainstorming session about issues that the school could improve on and positive things that the school is doing well.
Some of the issues that came up were water bottles in class and the possibility of these being squash or flavoured water. We discussed how some parents are parking outside the school gates and how this could be improved. One very important matter that came up was the difficulty in purchasing our blue school t-shirts from local clothing stores. Miss Cox has given this task to the School Council to investigate with local shops in Christchurch. The school council will ask them to consider the possibility of selling our t-shirts. Watch this space!
Another issue that the parents were very passionate about was our children learning how to swim. We discussed this with Mr Tarchetti and there are plans for some of the year groups to swim later in the year.
We discussed the Easter Egg Hunt and the orienteering that the children took part in last year and the possibility of it happening again this year. The parents were very keen to help run it this year on Thursday 29th March. If you are interested in helping at any point during the day please let Miss L Cox know.
It was a very productive meeting and we hope to address as many issues as we can. Thank you to all the parents who attended. The parents working party is open to all parents for you to come and have a voice. Please come along to our next meeting in the Summer term!
