What a great evening. We had just over 50 present including children. There was lots of chatter and laughter and people getting to know people. Our teachers acted as note takers as we asked our whanau several questions about their children and how well, or not, our school addresses the learning needs.
Parents were honest and helpful.
The food was gorgeous.
During the evening Maata shared the comparative achievement data and I listened to lots of, "oohs, mmmm, goodness mes and that's greats." Our Pasifika and Maori children do well. There is still a lot of room for improvement and as a teaching team we want to know how we can make that improvement for our children.
Thank you to everyone who came along.
