Please read on...

 

Please find attached the 2015 Hikuai School Behaviour Management Document. As mentioned in the Back to School newsletter this is not a change of Behaviour Management policy but rather illustrates the form that policy takes within the school yard at Hikuai School.

The emphasis will always be on the positive, the good and the kind at Hikuai School and as you read on you will see the TOTARA STUDENT takes on a new and pivotal dimension in this regard. At the same time however, there must be clear guidelines for staff, students and parents if a child chooses not to adhere to or deviates from the behaviour expectations of a student at Hikuai and this document conveys the consequences and the actions taken if this is indeed the case.

Please take the time to read through the document and talk about it with your  children. Staff will be working through the expectations and consequences at school with the students as well.

Like all good systems and procedures they will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they are best serving the mission and vision of the school.

Our relationships are what makes us strong so please, come and reconnect with our wonderful school, its children and staff.

The evening will be a casual affair and will be a great chance to meet Mr Joseph Stodart, our new Room 4 teacher. You can bring a packed dinner/picnic if you like or the school BBQ will be running if you want to cook your own meal such as sausages etc.

2014-2016 School Charter

At its 31 March 2014 meeting, the Board of Trustees ratified the 2014-2016 Hikuai School Charter.  The Education Act requires every school to have a charter and also to submit the charter to the Ministry of Education.  The Charter is a key planning document that sets out the school's objectives and targets for the year.  Our 2014 goals around increasing the number of students achieving 'at' or 'above' National Standards in reading are set out in this year's Charter.  I encourage you to read it. 

Regards,

Mark Milmine
Chairman, Board of Trustees



BOT - Governance Manual

Below is a link to the Hikuai School Governance Manual.  This document was updated and ratified by the Board in August 2014.  It outlines the Board's policies and how the Board conducts its business.
