Week 15 progress report

On Tuesday we had the pleasure of having the leadership team from Amesbury School in Wellington visit. Amesbury is a new school being built in Wellington and will open in February 2012. We took Lesley, Angela and Urs to visit our school site and talked over our journeys to date. It is really interesting to talk to others who are in the same role and at the same stage. We swapped ideas, talked about furniture, colours and uniforms, discussed our educative philosophy and shared our story.
Our foci for this week have been staffing and IT. Our advert for a PA/Secretary is attracting great interest and we are looking forward to reviewing the applications in a few days when the postion closes. If you are interested or know someone who is just right for the job please check out the advert online at SEEK.
We have also been looking at our staffing plan for teaching staff. Our advert will be in the next two issues of the Education Gazette, and should be online early next week. We will be employing seven lucky teachers to be foundation staff at HPS. We will post the link on our website as soon as it is live.
Our IT focus this week has been phone systems; PBX and softphones, cloud or server, hosted or not. We are investigating a few options and have had some interesting meetings with providers this week.
