It felt very comfortable setting up in Tunawhakapeke which is the library between the two high schools. This is the space that we will locate ourselves in for the rest of the year until the Senior High School is completed and handed over at the beginning of next year.
Getting the right people in our positions is critical and we spent a great deal of time talking through the need to not only have people that have curriculum expertise but also people with a real passion for young people and providing teaching and learning experiences that are responsive. It will also be important for us to ensure that successful applicants compliment each other. Varying types of people with different ranges of life and work experiences can bring a whole new layer of potential to our developing team and emerging curriculum.
Very very exciting times ahead!
