From The Principal...

We're hoping that parents/caregivers are able to join us from 5.45 -8.00 next Wednesday evening when we work through some activities that will help identify the goals and priorities for RSS over the next 3-5 years. Not surprisingly it includes curriculum (given the crowded curriculum, where should our priorities be?What should we do less of? What skills, understandings and knowledge are required for success in this rapidly changing world?) but it also includes identifying priorities in property/playground etc.  Please join us.  All you have to do is advise the office so we can arrange the light dinner for those attending. At the time of writing we haven't got many coming!

As a taster, I'd love you all to view this movie which our own Nic provided as a catalyst for thinking about what a high quality, future focused education might involve. 

We are looking forward to Marae trips in week seven.  Thank you so much to the group of parents joining classes for the day.  We very much appreciate all of the help that this community so generously provides, in the classroom, on the sports field, in fundraising and so much more.

Best wishes to you all,
