Whanau feedback on our Graduate Profile 

The school graduate profile is a document that we want to share with whānau as it helps us develop our tamariki into the best they can be by setting goals and expectations to work towards. Please see our draft “Graduate Profile” below.

We now have an online survey that will appear on our school facebook page tomorrow and teachers will share on their class facebook sites also. There will be a paper copy version available too for anyone that wishes to have a say, call in at the school office for this. We look forward to whānau feedback.
