Week 21 progress report

Days to opening: 128
Students enrolled: 7

We have begun the shortlisting from our first group of applicants and have been impressed with the applications we have received. Our potential future teachers have shown a deep understanding of the particular pedagogies that our learning environment will require and how they can help us to achieve the vision we have for HPS. We are looking forward to the next stages of the process as we learn more about the applicants and find the seven people who are going to help us to take the vision and buildings to the next level as we create an innovative learning space with our community. We are aiming to have completed our recruitment by the beginning of term 4 so that we can involve our new teachers in some of the planning and decisions as we count down to opening day.
Our investigations into furniture and resources are progressing with quotes being submitted, visits from reps to showcase their resources and lots and lots of discussion happening. We are aiming to be strategic about what we buy in terms of furniture and resources as we know that having the thoughts and opinions of our students and teachers is going to be imperative.
As our logo is now finalised we are in the process of getting business cards and letter head organised as well as having the embroidery for our uniforms sampled. As soon as this is 'signed off' we can start to pre order uniform components. We are hoping to be able to have prices and samples in early in term 4 so that parents can order well before Christmas to ensure their child has a new uniform for their first day at their new school. More information on this as we have it.
You will have seen that we have some plants being put in at the front of the school and some of the flowering cherries have blossom on them so the front of the school will look very pretty soon with the driveway and planting complete. Work is ongoing on the inside of the buildings with gib and ceiling tiles going in.
Please remember to come in and see us or send an email if you want an enrolment pack or any other information and thank you to the parents who responded to the assembly question - it's always great to get your feedback!
