Week 23 progress report

Days to opening: 116

Enrolments to date: 8

Building: on schedule for opening 1 Feb 2012

We have been busy interviewing this week and are pleased to have appointed some amazing teachers to join us on the team at HPS. Once we have confirmation of appointments we will introduce them to you.

We have signed off on our uniform design and should have samples here early next term for students to come in and try on so that parents can order them in time to start in February. We will let you know when those are available for trying on.

Next term we will have our lovely school secretary here full time. Nadine will be in the office Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm so parents can bring children in before or after school to try on uniforms. If you know that your children are coming to HPS next year please come in and get an enrolment form, the earlier we know you are coming the better! We will also have some evenings during term 4 where we are open later for parents who can't make it before 4pm (dates to be advised).

We are continuing to investigate resources and have met with a number of reps from various educational resource companies. Our philosophy is that every piece of equipment has to fit with the vision of the school and the way in which our studios will work. We are meeting with experts in a number of areas to ensure that our processes, resources and plans meet the needs of our students within that framework. This week we have been focussing on literacy and assessment, making sure the pedagogy is right before we make any purchases.

Building progress this week includes the installation of more windows, finalisation of the data adaptations, ply installed in the hall, footpaths being laid and switch cupboards installed.
